Royz describe their concept as “catchy” and they wish to “make music that appeals to all different kinds of people”. And they are really good in doing that. Their looks are sometimes more in the Oshare Kei – Genre and sometimes very dark. On the one side their sound is very hard and rockish but on the other side soft and more electronic. Thanks to this big variety they are gaining fans all around the world quickly.
