(Video) King Krule – ‘Easy Easy’

We’ve been keeping tabs on King Krule for quite some time now, something like two and a half years maybe? Anyway, the young Londoner is finally poised to release his debut album entitled, 6 Feet Beneath The Moon

Ahead of the album’s release later this month, King Krule has released the video to new track ‘Easy Easy’. King Krule has long been the closest inheritor of Billy Bragg’s minimal folk/punk ruggedness, from Bragg’s early days anyway. ‘Easy Easy’ doesn’t exactly dispel this notion. It’s raw and punchy, with a sparsity to it, which allows for a thudding riff (very early BB) and gut wrenching vocals to completely take control of the senses. His album may have been a long time coming but if ‘Easy Easy’ is anything to go by, it might just have been worth the wait. 

6 Feet Beneath The Moon is out August 24th through XL True Panther.

King Krule – ‘Rock Bottom’

Since stumbling across Archy Marshall early last year, he and his talents have impressed ever so much in this short time under the guises of  Zoo Kid and King Krule.

The London teenager’s music sounds older and wiser than his relatively young age would suggest, as does his voice, which is rough alluding to someone who has lived a much longer, fuller life. He’s been fairly quiet this year but  his latest single ‘Rock Bottom’ provides further evidence of growth and progression. While his earlier releases hinted toward Jamie T and Billy Bragg, he’s beginning to find his very own space on the musical landscape. ‘Rock Bottom’ sounds quite aggressive, especially the vocals, but it’s kept in check, rattling behind the upbeat, jangling guitars and unabashed funk.

‘Rock Bottom’ is out on 7″ on September 25th via Rinse Records.

King Krule – ‘Portrait In Black & Blue’

‘Portrait In Black & Blue’ is the second track to be taken from King Krule’s new self-titled EP.

We have already heard ‘The Noose Of Jah City’ (listen here) and we find the former Zoo Kid, Archy Marshall, once again sounding  well beyond his tender age of 17 years.

The King Krule EP is out 7 November via True Panther.

Hear some of his previous work as Zoo Kid posted earlier in the year too.

King Krule (Formerly Zoo Kid) – The Noose of Jah City

London teenager Archy Marshall, formerly known as Zoo Kid, is finalizing a new project under the King Krule moniker.

New track ‘The Noose Of Jah City’, taken from the forthcoming self-titled EP has appeared online. Pitched somewhere between Billy Bragg and Jamie T, ‘The Noose Of Jah City’ is warm yet melancholic, assured number with lush hypnotic guitars.

The King Krule EP is out 7 November via True Panther.
