Young Greek shoegazers Royal Arch have unveiled their debut track and A-side single from their first-ever seven-inch, due out in early 2022 on vinyl via Make me Happy Records (EU), Jigsaw Records (US) and Fastcut Records (AS).

Watch the video for “La Nuit (The Night)” below:

Royal Arch are a five-piece band from Athens, Greece, formed in 2020 and consists of Elias Masri (vocals), Nick Kokkinos (guitar), Orestis Loukas (bass), Elias Kokkinos (drums), and Vassilis Dousis (guitar).

The members of Royal Arch met while attending high school in Piraeus, where they used to spend countless hours in each other’s homes. With the joining of vocalist Elias Masri in 2020, the group had been formed where they started actively playing.

Royal Arch’s passionate debut is rich and dark but filled with hope. The band’s sound is cinematic in scope and lovingly pulls from the early ‘00s indie-rock revival scene.

On the track’s release, the band states:

“‘La Nuit’ is an ode to first love and eternal in all its forms. A story of a couple meeting over one night and falling in love in Paris. The frustrating futility of trying to find the truth and destroy what is keeping us away.”
