The dapper gents in Broke Royals are clearly aiming for breakout success with their anthemic radio-friendly pop sound. The single “Higher” from their debut self-titled album put them on the map with a feature from Southwest Airlines. Now the single has a music video directed by Scott Hansen, with amazing aerial footage of the band at the highest peak in Georgia, possibly recognizable as the setting for recent Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbusters. All this attention is great, but it’s 2018 and Broke Royals what it takes to make it. To that end, they just launched a Patreon to engage their superfans in the band’s success. Direct patronage is a lot of work, but we think Broke Royals have what it takes to thrive.
