美國韓裔獨立搖滾樂團:大Royal Pirates (로얄P.)

3/16/2010



這次要介紹一個最近讓我빠져的地下樂團,他們的名字是大Royal Pirates (皇家海盜,大로얄P.)。其實應該很多親辜--尤其是韓飯,都有聽說過他們,這幾個美裔的韓國男生因為翻唱過許多著名的KPOP而小有名氣 (之前也是因為他們covering了sorry sorry才注意到的)  雖然尚未正式被簽約出道,已經有一票忠實的fans了!


不過光是covering,也只是還處於蠻有實力、但聽聽就好的階段,並不會讓我特別想介紹他們..... 直到最近他們公開了最新的原創歌曲以及自製的Music video,我才發現他們的音樂風格...還真對我的味! (笑)


【關於,Royal Pirates 】




組合名:大Royal Pirates (大로얄P.)
成員:(上圖左起)  Sooyoon 、Moonchul、James
沿革:2004年- Fading From Dawn
            2008年- Royal Pirates
現居地:Southern California


要介紹Royal Pirates,就不能不提到「Fading From Dawn」。Fading From Dawn成立於2004年,可以說是Royal Pirates的前身,當時的成員是 Moonchul、Sooyoon 以及Richard (本名Kim MoonChan,是Moonchul的親哥哥)。當時主要在美國加州活動,在許多韓國人的慶典(如Annual Orange County Korean Festival)上面表演。令人惋惜的是,在2008年4月11日,貝斯手Richard --也就是Moonchul的哥哥MoonChan,與兩位友人David Chong(정용혁)和 Daniel Kim(김동은)因車禍過世,享年21歲。Fading From Dawn因為失去了貝斯手而不再做live演出,只剩下兩人組合的Moonchul和Sooyoon 將團名更改為「大Royal Pirates 」,而不再使用Fading From Dawn這個名字。

▼ Moonchul&Sooyoon


這期間,Royal Pirates透過Youtube公開眾多翻唱短片逐步獲得知名度,像是Muse的Time is running out"、Britney Spears的"Circus" .... 以及一些知名的K-POP曲,讓他們的頻道受到20萬人次以上的瀏覽、多達萬餘人的訂閱率。

隨著知名度的提高,也陸續有媒體報導他們了。韓國的新聞頻道 YTN以 「轟動Youtube的獨立搖滾樂團」介紹他們、韓國朝陽日報以不小的篇幅做了報導、各大門戶韓娛網站也開始採訪他們.....。而因為sorry sorry的改編獲得極大的反響,甚至收到star king製作組的邀請,不過他們以與課業衝突為由婉拒了。

Allkpop 採訪 Royal Pirates  (演奏歌曲為原創曲'Crawling Out')


2009年9月,Royal Pirates正式引進了一位新的貝斯手James Lee,三位團員都是在美國成長的韓國人,擁有一口流利又標準的英語。至此,Royal Pirates樂團終於算是完整了。

【關於,音樂】



 ★ K-POP Covering 

Super Junior Sorry Sorry Rock Ver. 


SNSD  說出願望吧 Rock Ver. 



Moonchul 似乎蠻適合唱女團的歌?(笑) 把소원的搖滾版改編的很不錯聽。
是說他們還有改編蠻多當紅歌曲的,像是 Again&Again 、Nobody等等~~在你水管都可以找得到,因為不是本篇重點,有興趣的親自己去翻翻吧~ ^^

★ Original track 


這邊就是本篇的重點了~他們的音樂受到 Muse, L'Arc~en~Ciel, Saosin等的影響,在搖滾中添加迷幻又有些黑暗的基調,情感層次豐富又強烈。比起Moonchul來我似乎更喜歡Sooyoon的聲音? 他寫的作品也十分的好聽.....不過Moonchul 比較可愛就是了(笑)

◤Royal Villain◢ 
(第一首公開的自創曲)


song composed by moonchul/sooyoon
vocals/guitar by moonchul
drums by sooyoon

그렇게 눈 감고 있어 아무것도 볼수 없게
너의 세상은 어둠이 덮어 버리게 조금 더 내버려 뒀어야만해
널 전부 집어 삼키게

얼룩진 너의 그 모습이 왠지 내 마음에 들어
그래 그렇게 지금 그대로 그냥 좀 더 멋지잖아

처음엔 눈치 못체게 어떻게도 알수없게 조금씩 다가 올꺼야
나중엔 멈출수 없게 절대 겉잡을수 없게 빠르게 퍼져갈꺼야

물들어버린 네 모습은 전혀 알아볼수 없게
썩어 버리고 부패 되어서 악취만 풍기잖아
눈물도 감정도 없이 난 평생을 살아왔잖아
혼자 그렇게 너무 외롭게 세상을 원망하면서



◤Like Butterflies ◢
Like Butterflies (Origianal Demo Ver.)  by Sooyoon


composed by Sooyoon
All instrumentals and vocals by Sooyoon


Maybe I, maybe I've made a mistake of loving you
But if I, but if I could fly to you. I would.

널 기다리는 하루하루, 마치 일년 같아
너를 향한 나의 맘은 너의 마음과 똑같아
때론 다른 여자 만나 널 불안하게 하지만
걱정마 나에겐 너 하나 뿐이니까
너에 곁에 없어 지금은 안아줄수 없지만
늘 달콤한 말로만 너의 귀에 속삭일께
사랑 가득 담긴 입맞춤을 그대에게 바칠께
나의 품에 너를 안고 항상 너를 지켜줄께

But if I, like butterflies, could fly away
Just you and I, then nothing would ever be the matter


◤ Crawling Out ◢

I tell you there’s no reason
I don’t want you and that's the reason
Why I can’t be here anymore
Just wanna disappear
Leave nothing with you here
Cause I can’t sleep with you by my side
Tonight I’ll just slip away
Tonight I’ll give you one last kiss
I am falling down
Cause it’s not easy to forget what you’ve done
You let me down cause you never noticed that we were nothing but done
You were there at the club downstairs
Looking dizzy with a few cheers
I went right in front of you
Never doubted that you wouldn’t come with me to the hotel room
And that’s how we came together that night
Tonight let’s not stay alone
Tonight I’ll give you one last kiss
Woah I’m falling down
'Cause it’s not easy to forget what you’ve done
You let me down cause you never noticed that we were nothing but done
Ah ah oh ooooh
Ahah ah oh ooooh
Ahah ah oh oooooooh….
You’ll never know I was even here
Falling down cause it’s not easy to forget what you’ve done
You let me down cause you never noticed that we were nothing but done


◤One Hundred Roses ◢
One Hundred Roses Demo Ver. by SY

Music/Words/Vocals by Sooyoon
composed by Sooyoon


Well, if you were to be my girl,
Um, I could wait for you in the rain
With no umbrellas in my hands
I could just wait
I don't care if this is not the right time
'Cause I can't hide how I feel inside anymore
I've been waiting for you
And with this moment you'll be mine
I'll get you with my

I caught you out of one hundred million ladies
I don't wanna be like any other guys out there
I wish I was special to you
My love Be my baby
I'll never let you slip away

Then I'll wave my hand with a smile on my face
When I see you miles away from me blushing
Oh how cute
You look so much more beautiful than my

I've never thought that I could be
Ridiculously in love with you
I just cant get you out of my head
My love, be my baby
I'll never let you slip away


◤Disappear◢
尚未出道,只是Royal Pirates為回饋給FANS而製作的Music video:


Directed by
Steve Hwang
Lyrics by Moonchul


Tell me that this is my mistake and youre not
Telling me that this is the end, no I hope not
And you are burning me inside
Things that Ive never meant to say I told you
Thing that you wanted me to say, I never did
And this is burning me inside
Ill try to leave this behind
Ill try to leave you afar

Would you disappear
To where youve never been before
I just cant let you be here no more
And Im not stopping you here
So just disappear

Youve taken me down and let me drown
I shouldve taken you down with me
And all the things we share
Lets just burn it all on sight




以上,大概對Royal Pirates做了一些介紹~ 也推薦給大家^^ 不知道有沒有哪家公司想要簽下他們呢? 期待又一實力樂團回國內出道啊!

    他們真的很有自己的風格
    不過看他們唱搜哩會怕他們喘不過氣((畢竟13人
    希望他們發展能越來越好...((主唱讓我想到超新星的某人XD
