Royal Treatment Plant


Ποιός: Royal Treatment Plant are a UK indie rock female vocals band
Genre: dance-punk, indie rock, sounds a lot like Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, very indie rock, a little punky, very listenable and mainstream. Some of the tracks are more Au Revoir Simone and some tend towards the more gritty, punk rock of Hole or Auf Der Maur.
Trivia: Lead singer girl Paula (aka Princess P or PP) is an Australian who moved to London to get "exposed to the unholy trinity of sex, drugs and rock’n’roll." Rumor has it that she asked the first guy she met at a bus stop in Uxbridge with a bass over his back if he wanted to jam. And that's how RTP got set up. And in case you didn't notice she is very hot.
Άκου Αυτό: if you like Au Revoir Simone, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Pixies, Muse or The Ting Tings. Couple great singles Half as much' and Get played. Undercurrent has a really cool guitar bit in the middle. Hope is not enough is quite a dance-punk opening track. Carry Me (from previous album of the same name) is a lot rawer but still really good. Current album is "Hope is not enough".
