Description

Archy Marshall, as singer/songwriter King Krule is actually known, releases "The Ooz", the long-awaited follow-up to his highly acclaimed debut album "Six Feet Beneath The Moon", which was released in August 2013. Hailed by the British press as the raw voice of his generation and "pop prodigy", the new songs underline his exceptional status in the local artist scene: King Krule is a vocal observer as well as the mouthpiece of a confused and dazed youth

Archy Marshall took four years to produce the album. He recorded most of the songs in his own house, which in the recent past has become a meeting place for up-and-coming artists in South London. So it's hardly surprising that "The Ooz" resembles a musical melting pot of punk, jazz and dirty beats. In it, King Krule proves himself to be a modern poet whose language reflects the British zeitgeist

That's why "The Ooz" sounds like the soundtrack to an uncomfortable future - quite gloomy, but still full of hope.

Reviews

"Fat horns, saxophones, echoing sirens, out-of-tune guitars, and gloomy synthezisers make these mini radio plays a potential soundtrack for a science fiction film noir." (Stereo, January 2018)

"... An album so unexcitingly out of the ordinary that it's one of the best of the pop winter." (stereoplay, January 2018)
