King Charles – Love Lust
OK so that’s enough melancholy posts from me about songs with sleepy chords and drowsy beauty. Wake up and get dressed Marcus! King Charles have beaten me to it, with a piano line that I could see myself playing and which form biceps carrying the rest of the music triumphantly. I love the skittering sleek drum tapping that comes in at 0:45, perfectly suited to the lyrics and vocals which sound almost matter-of-fact in their cast iron harmonies and delightful turn of phrase. And if all this wasn’t enough, King Charles give the final third of the song to make them stand out from the thousands of other bands who have the right ingredients on their hands. The production gets more intense, the arrangements fill with energy then overflow until everyone is ankle deep and drenched.
seriously excellent music.
