Cult band The Bombay Royale make their triumphant return with third studio masterpiece Run Kitty Run. A Retro Bollywood fueled rampage through psyche-surf, 80's electro-pop and desert rock, Run Kitty Run is, like its predecessors, conceived as the soundtrack to a lost film. The music conjures into life a devastated futuristic landscape peopled by robotic horsemen, killer satellites and grinning sadhus. Overlaid with vocals in Hindi, Bengali and English, the resulting soundtrack is one of love and betrayal, hopeless escapes and unlikely salvation.
The first single "Ballygunge" has an angular 80's vibe, infused with gated snares and the spirits of Talking Heads and David Bowie and it's a love song set in a dark sci-fi vision of Kolkata. Familiar landmarks like Gol Park are dwarfed by aerial highways and transmitter towers framed by the plumes of departing spacecraft. Despite the odds love blazes defiantly – whether it can survive is another question. Recorded between Hope Street Studios in Brunswick and Soundpark Studios in Northcote, Run Kitty Run was co-produced by Tristan Ludowyk (The Putbacks, The Cactus Channel) and The Skipper aka Andy Williamson.
