If you haven't yet heard the stadium-worthy alt pop from LA-based duo Royal Tongues, you'll want to get acquainted. Comprised of Aaron Bonus and Justin Gammella, the self-described “personal and creative outlet” was formed last fall after many years writing and producing music for other artists and for film & TV projects. 

But after dropping the Patterns And Shapes EP last fall (which spawned their debut single “The Balance” that lit up the Hype Machine), they’ve returned with their latest single “Chasing Down A Feeling,” premiering exclusively on Billboard.

The slick track, punctuated by a disco-inspired horn tag, offers up the perfect come down from summer. Of the track, Bonus told Billboard “'Chasing Down A Feeling' was a blast to create. I believe Justin and I dug deep into each of our influences and came out with a track we both felt was very special."

And with recent tour dates supporting the likes of Bleachers, X Ambassadors, and Young The Giant, it looks like their ascent is just beginning.
