Exclusive: Unlikely Twosome Fly Moon Royalty Release “Rx”

Seattle’s Adra Boo and Action J of Fly Moon Royalty come off as a particularly incongruous duo, merging Boo’s soulful vocals, perfectly ripe for R&B, with Action J’s contemporary electronica and rap. Like any odd couple, the two are hard to stop watching once you’ve started, and the same goes for listening. They have an infectious charisma, particularly Boo, who will no doubt be your focus when watching performances or music videos (see “Lemonade,” below).  

Their newest track “Rx” gives a little bit more shine to Action J, whose rhymes are digestible yet intelligent, while Boo decorates with funk-fueled embellishments. Although we’ve all heard our share of soulful house and jazzy electronica, I’ve rarely seen a group merge genres so well without veering too far from said genres’ foundations. The track also further exemplifies the pair’s keenness on experimentation and rebellion, bringing tribal drums and shouts into the mix, thus designing a sincerely unique musical landscape.
