The Last Royals, a Brooklyn duo of writer/singer/producer Eric James and drummer Mason Ingram, formed in early 2010 after meeting and working together on a charity record with producer Mike Beck. James had at that point written and demoed a collection of songs on his own, a handful of which ultimately comprised TLR’s buzzed about EP released later that fall, but was still seeking a broader personality and gravitas for the project. Upon meeting Ingram a connection seemed to click and, together with Beck, they began forging a grander collective intersection of live energy and sound. The result of their collective exploration is captured in The Last Royals full-length debut, Twistification. Discovered by Ooh La La Records founder, Theo Aronson, the single "Crystal Vases" peaked at #4 on SiriusXM's Alt Nation.
