Today, Fly Moon Royalty is excited to release their new EP, Dimensions. The five-track EP, which was preceded by lead single "My Heart Keeps Pumping" and the era-specific follow-up "The Birthday Song," is available for free download via the Seattle-based electrosoul duo's Bandcamp page.
Fly Moon Royalty prides itself on the deeper meaning behind their music and song titles, and this EP is no different. The title, Dimensions, stands for and conveys multiple messages for the duo for Seattle. "'Dimensions' speaks on two things," explains Fly Moon Royalty. "First, the various different places, directions, and depth we can go with our music. And the second thing is time, as in, our sound can cross different time periods."
The music on Dimensions reflects that ability to cross different times periods directly, as, according to Fly Moon Royalty, a number of the tracks actually pull from different eras of the group's musical journey. "It's mix-bag of rogue songs that needed a home," explains the duo. "One song was recorded years ago before Fly Moon Royalty was even a group, for example, but even though they were all created at different times, they're all still very much representative of Fly Moon Royalty."
And therefore, despite being released so soon after their debut, rather than serve as a logical extension or progression from Fly Moon Royalty, Dimensions serves as something more unique -- a look at not only where Fly Moon Royalty has been, but also where they're going. "Some of the songs were recorded a long time ago," says Fly Moon. "But the newer ones are most definitely a step forward in writing, recording and mixing."

Originally formed in 2010 in Seattle, Washington, under the name "Sugar Water Purple", AdraBoo and Action Jackson quickly disbanded the name once they discovered that it already existed, which ultimately gave birth to Fly Moon Royalty. Having opened up for Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings and Allen Stone, and drawing comparisons to artists like Janelle Monáe and Gnarls Barkley, the electro-soul duo is prepared to introduce themselves to the world with their self-titled debut album, Fly Moon Royalty, available now via Sportn Life Records. Following the release of Fly Moon Royalty, the Seattle duo will release their new EP, Dimensions, on May 22nd.
