Royal Depeche- Reality 7”

This one is FRESH off the needle, ladies and gentlemen. Just got home to find this waiting in my mailbox, and couldn’t wait to rip and share it with y’all.

Some folks may recall hearing the guitar and hook driven b-side on a previous Systems of Romance compilation, but I’ve always wanted to hear the lead track. I feared the worst, for usually when only one track surfaces from a highly coveted single, chances are that the other track isn’t really worth it. Happy to report that the a-side might be even better, though the two tracks are very similar sounding overall. Chances are the b-side originated from this excellent compilation of German goth and post-punk tracks, as this single appears to be extremely rare.

If you’re not already familiar with this band, Royal Depeche were a German post-punk band who released this one single in 1987, and were never heard from again. Though it was released much later, there are definitely 81-84 vibes all over this one, especially in the Chameleons-esque guitar lines that can be heard throughout both tracks. There are hooks galore and strong female vocals to bring the tracks home. With that in mind, hope you enjoy this one as much as I do!
