King Krule - Easy Easy

Single review by kev@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk


Archy Marshall has been hyped to high heaven for what seems like years, yet he's still in his teens. Since emerging with some home demos under the name Zoo Kid back in 2010, publications like NME have been all over him. Now plying his trade under the name King Krule it's time for him to prove that all the fuss has been worth it, as in the next few days he releases his debut album '6 Feet Beneath The Moon'. No doubt there will be no backtracking from the early press champions, but what will the wider world think?

Current single 'Easy Easy' is something of an acquired taste, but it's one that's worth acquiring. With his strong south-eastern accent coming across like a less pretentious Syd Vicious, the music is brash and simple. Guitars are strummed vigorously and hazy productions floods out the backing of the song. He knows how to do a chorus too, and that's always something that bodes well for commercial viability, something which you suspect isn't that high up on his priorities list. In truth King Krule has always seemed like an artist who wants to do what he likes. So that's what he's done, and he's definitely got our stamp of approval.
