“All that glitters is gold
Don’t believe what you’ve been told
People lie, people love, people go
But beauty lies in every soul”
Vocalist, Naomi Almquist just did something that I did not believe was possible. She just made me a fan of a Future Islands song. Almquist has such a lovely vibrato in her voice that it just sweeps you away.
Prinze George is Kenny Grimm (production/instrumental), Naomi Almquist (vocals) and Isabelle De Leon (drums), who are based in Maryland. Kenny and Naomi grew up together in Prince George’s County, where they met Isabelle while she was in college. Formed in 2013, Prinze George has quickly exploded onto the Indie scene. Following the release of their breakthrough single, “Victor,” The Wild Honey Pie declared, “[This band] could be destined for Indie Pop royalty status.” Climbing to #1 on the Hype Machine charts, the single and the band have won the attention of music blogs, fans and labels from all over the world. “Victor” was also selected for the movie soundtrack of Warner Bros.’ biggest European release in 2014, Honig Im Kopf, a film directed by Til Schweiger.
The band is also currently on tour with Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. Listen to the cover above as well as their Daytrotter session recorded earlier this year at Good Danny’s in Austin during SXSW. Don’t miss them on this amazing tour!
