Spotlight: KING – The Story

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/7dhPuid9e4Q" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

Successful blending of the retro and progressive is not easy. More than a handful of projects trying to accomplish this feat circulate the internet everyday, but only a few do it well. King’s The Story is one these few. The debut three-track EP highlights harmony of three ladies over an amalgam of light guitars, keys, and synths, big drums, tambourines, and pulsating bass without beating us over the head with either the accompaniments or any particular voice. In other words, the group’s wall of sound is more of an entrance than a barrier. I suppose we could all use a bit more supernatural love, and these three tracks played in sequence are a great place to start. Listen on Soundcloud, like them on Facebook, and purchase the EP on iTunes or Amazon.  There’s also a cute cut-and-paste video (above) if you like that sort of thing.
