The night before his new album is released King Krule returns to Kingston.
Following up from his acclaimed debut album, Archy Marshall AKA King Krule is back with his second album The OOZ. He's become somewhat of a celebrated figurehead on the independent British music scene with his bleak, swirling take on jazz influenced / psyche-indie. We've seen him before at New Slang and we're happy to see him again.
“The OOZ” snaps into focus quickly and sharply, his modus operandi coming into view almost immediately. Over jazzy curlicues and guitars, the opener “Biscuit Town” sets out its stall irresistibly as Marshall sings about rapidly disintegrating romance and personal dissolution with acute, almost painful detail. These wrenching themes of self-annihilation and fraying relationships seem inextricably linked in Marshall’s eyes – once you lose yourself to someone else, you inevitably wind up losing yourself completely when they leave – and recur in other tracks."
After the show, it's New Slang as usual where you can expect to hear the likes of The Shins, Foals, Wolf Alice, alt-J and many more until 2AM.
Times TBC, but we expect doors to be at 9:00pm with King Krule on stage at 10:30pm, please check back.
