Robert Raimon Roy’s self titled single is featured on NPR’s 100 Favorite Songs of 2012 alongside artists such as Ellie Goulding, Charlift, Baaur, Grimes, and others. NPR describes the track as, “a cartoonishly dramatic track as he recounts a staid love life in elastic syllables.” If you haven’t heard “Robert Raimon Roy” yet, you can listen to this single on Soundcloud along with other songs from his upcoming album, Le Tigre Blanc which is out next week.
