Despite cutting a frail, paper thin, pale exterior you sort of get the impression that Archy Marshall is one young lad you wouldn’t want to fuck with.
In Easy Easy, Marshall takes us on a trip around London’s streets, meandering across rooftops with his young mate, cutting the expression of a misunderstood tearaway contemplating thoughts far greater than the misguided contemporary stereotype portrays.
Dressed in what looks like his dad’s old suit, Marshall isn’t afraid to tell you exactly what he thinks:
“Man I’m sure I told you so,
And with your dead-end job,
That’s been eating away your life,
You feel a little inside,
The trouble and the strife,
And now you spend your evenings searching for a better life”
You can see, just by watching him that Archy Marshall doesn’t give a shit about what anybody things of him, telling the tales of misspent youth that most of us can relate to in some way or another.
The voice seperates King Krule from anything you’ll listen to today, his whole aura of placed aggression through forcing his poetic lyrics that sometimes even come out slurred so full of emotion.
King Krule has just released his debut album 6 Feet Beneath The Moon via True Panther, as I’m sure you’re already aware if you’ve been on YouTube this week. I think it’s the first time I’ve been pleased to see the mandatory twenty-second advert. Those twenty seconds make me feel a little bit better about myself before I watch a baby monkey ride backwards on a pig.
Luckily, you can catch King Krule in October as the band have announced they’ll be playing five shows in the UK, starting in Sheffield and stopping off in Glasgow, Manchester, Brighton then finishing off in London before nipping across Europe. All information can be found here.
