The Royal Arctic Institute Release Sophomore Album ACCIDENTAL ACHIEVEMENT

Today, New York instrumental trio The Royal Arctic Institute are proud to release their sophomore album Accidental Achievement on Rhyme and Reason Records. The group will perform tonight at The Nest in Brooklyn to celebrate the release. See below for more New York and New Jersey shows in the near future, with more to be announced soon. Accidental Achievement is now available on Spotify and for purchase HERE.

The release comes shortly after the debut of the video for "The Grubert Effect," which Tiny Mix Tapes called a "propulsive concoction of guitar, bass, and drums that braked at the right moments and careened most of the rest of the time." The video is available to stream or embed HERE, and the audio-only track can be found on Spotify.

The Royal Arctic Institute are a New York trio playing an eclectic blend of cinematic mood music. The group formed in 2016 and released their debut record The French Method in 2017. The three members of the Royal Arctic Institute include John Leon (Roky Erickson's backing band), Gerard Smith (Phantom Tollbooth), and Lyle Hysen (Das Damen). The three members of The Royal Arctic Institute take a "post-everything" approach to their compositions while pulling from many different genres and sonic palettes.
