Template:Main In the early 2010s, he and his brother, Gigi Ben Artzi formed the band "Tiger Love". Roy played guitar and was the lead vocalist while his brother Gigi played bass. The band's song "Pussy Cocaine" released in 2010 reportedly received hundreds of thousands of views and even made it to the top ten of the Hype Machine Music Chart. They have shared a stage with artists such as The Pet Shop Boys and Mark Ronson and were featured in The Guardian, Paper magazine and Fred Perry.[11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19]

In 2011, "Tiger Love" appeared at the Lowlands Music Festival in the Netherlands with The Arctic Monkeys.[20]
