天才King Krule (本名Archy Marshall) 是Zoo kid的主唱兼吉他手,曾化名為DJ JD Sports、Edgar The Beatmaker和Lankslacks。有著顯眼的紅髮和雀斑。據說本人沒有正式學過音樂,來自south east london的口音,年輕的他一開口是很深沉的聲音,帶著咆哮似,帶有生命的爵士吉他,憂傷的歌詞甚至暴力,你會說他是憤世的,他是。不論什麼時刻聽都很適合,音樂很有"我們是那麼年輕那麼悲傷"的精神。深沉的憂鬱藍調風格帶點爵士、嘻哈,造就很不一樣的藍調音樂。其實我不能就這樣直接定意它是哪種音樂,因為它涵蓋的情感太廣。King Krule說他的音樂是"Blue Wave",更精準地描述顏色,這是他的藍色時期。他說“It’s my Picasso. It’s my Blue Wave. It casts a blue over myself, and it’s a wave of music. It’s a wave of sound. It’s a wave of physicality coming toward the people.”

新文章有詳細介紹→ King Krule專輯『6 Feet beneath the moon』開箱文+明年2月來台!!!!!

 


King Krule (本樂團名稱是Zoo kid 改名為 King Krule)
from UK
音樂類型:Blue Wave / Blue / Bleak / Jazz / Trip Hop / Indie Rock / Punk Jazz / Jazz fusion / Post-Punk / Darkwave
主唱 / 吉他手 Archy Marshall
鼓手 George Bass
吉他手 Jack Towell
貝斯手 James Wilson

這樂隊相當相當的緊湊,他們能彼此配合。King Krule 成員也絕非等閒之輩,都是念BRIT School (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Kate Nash, Jessie J, The Kooks 多位名人都是唸這所高中)音樂學校,聽了他們的音樂就可以了解。

Archy Marshall 平常跟著媽媽聽音樂,影響他最深的的音樂人有Gene Vincent 和 Fela Kuti,音樂類型都是爵士、搖滾和鄉村音樂等等。被診斷過有精神疾病的Archy,以精神病為由,13歲開始拒絕上學,最後機構通知父母如果不讓他上學,他們將坐牢。苦悶的Archy失眠熬夜,半夜聽 The Pixies 和 The Libertines 的音樂得到靈感。將憤怒投射和排解在音樂製作上,充滿了80年代音樂浪潮。

好評
"Deceptively diminutive, Archy Marshall fidgets onstage. He is 17, angsty and awkward. But he is no teeny-bopper. A pleasant dissonance arises when he opens his mouth, and from his slight body emerges a deep, rich sound."
— Jacob Brown, NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE

"While most of Marshall’s lyrics can be bleak or even violent, the instrumentation almost always strikes a warm contrast. There’s beauty in the clean, echoing guitars that are all over King Krule and some unexpected moments too— the jazzy stand-up bass on “363N63" or the string hits in “Bleak Bake", for example. These textures and sounds lend a redemptive, hopeful quality to the music."
— Hari Ashurst, PITCHFORK

"This darkwave troubadour might be a Brit School alumnus, but his synth-noir sound is about as far removed from the fame-academy archetype as you can get"
— Paul Lester, GUARDIAN

17歲錄製〈Out Getting Ribs〉時

 

 

King Krule - Out Getting Ribs


超超超超喜歡這首,實在太太美麗...影片拍攝得很好,當他在唱,和沒有在唱"Don't break away",回頭看的時候很有情境。
影片中的狗是他們家的狗 Patch,覺得這種狗超可愛

 

Hate runs through my blood
What matter are words in love
But my heart always left above
I've gotta believe you now
I thought I'd never be sure about
But girl, I'm black and blue
So beaten down for you
Well, I'm beaten down and blue

Don't break away
I'll waste away
Don't break away

Lay me out across the grey
Hours I should have kept at bay
I had no choice to get away
I can't escape my own mistake
Even more when it's sweet to the taste
Red stairs lead astray
I look up and see for faith
But girl, just lean over and say
"Lay me down"
And hear me out
Take my crown
Submerse me down

But wait
I make my last request
Yours could be the best
But I need to rest
Well I've been broken down
So much has lost it now
I just wanted to say
Girl, don't you worry 'bout a thing
Girl
Baby, please

 



King Krule - The Noose of Jah City

令人中毒

 

It ease away the pain
As you.. to torment me from ….
I’m always to blame,
It took my days
Always.. the loss of faith

Now surrounded,
They saw me fall from Hell
But not hit the ground
And I spent dying
The body found, my soul is left to drown
Suffocating in concrete
It took a hold on me, put me on repeat
Now you… and you start to live
Towards an escape, but I …

It ease away the pain
As you.. to torment me from ….
I’m always to blame,
It took my days
Always.. the loss of faith

These wounds go too long
I start to lose the sense of…
The room becomes a…
As I see they wash away my pride!
And in the time, I solve the crime so prosper by
I wonder why, I question why


It ease away the pain
As you.. to torment me from ….
I’m always to blame,
It took my days
Always.. the loss of faith



King Krule - Rock Bottom

This is dedicated to a Mr Bree,
And a Mr Reed, and a Mr. Pilot and a Mr Mood

I flip the world, and I'm running away
I've made it babe, think what your lover would say
Think in a properly way
See girl I won't say, until it finds me
Wiped out

My mind starts to derange
Distortions arrange, inside looses it's rage
Does everyone's perspective begins to change
Uh I must say, just softly to blame
Another thing wrong with the game
And watch me as I descend into shame
Into, into shame
Into, into shame

Where you're heart's gonna mourn,
You lie dead on the floor
The wounds in your pockets still sore
And everyone who watched you, watched on and on
But now you see it's nothing but poor
And I'm a lost soul, never accomplished a goal
Or made a lie out of their lives
They're the ones who pulled out tonight
Neither oh, everything's going in front of your eyes
Your hands have lost the grip on the Wrize
And you've got no more tries
Cause you've lost them trough lies
I'll be your lucky his time
And hope it'll make you seem more wiser
Otherwise, they'll leave you to your own demise

Cause it's the end of something I do not want to end
Beginning of hard times to come
I've been something I was not meant to be
I guess it's the start of your world

 

浪漫的〈Baby Blue〉
King Krule - Baby Blue - Take Away Show

這首歌的編制,後來現場大約會演奏到6分多鐘,非常令人陶醉。


Baby blue

My sandpaper sigh
Engraves a line
Into the rust of your tongue
I could've been someone
To you
Would have painted the skies blue
Baby blue
If you knew
Baby blue

Edging closer
You swing my way
I've got no chance
And nothing to say
But stay
Here for a while
Baby blue

But if only
You could see
My shadow crossing your path
It won't be the last

Baby blue

 

Zoo Kid / King Krule - Broke 


They never told you anything
I'm not learning I'm just menacing
He knows to fix it cause he’s broke
And the one thing he hates to be is a joke

[Chorus]:

(beat picks up as Archy repeats the word “broke”)

[verse 2]

And oh, sorry love he spent all your money on the parking fee
And there goes last week's salary
When you find him down the local
And yet he charmed you with his vocal
I bet you didn’t expect to be sitting at home on your own
Waiting for the bell or the telephone
Cause now you spend your nights
Fighting the same old fights
And your only comfort was the tv
But not anymore ‘cause you can’t afford the license fee

[Chorus]:

(beat picks up as Archy repeats the word “broke”)

[verse 3]

And now we’re six feet under (?) from another government blunder
I wonder
Who’s next (?)
They call me lost in their tundra
I’ve only lost too much
And now they’ve turned all our money, into dust
And then the U.S., at least they got someone to trust
Cause i could not been under the crust
And i could not been to believe in
The city’s just grieving, kids just teething
I’m weaving through cars
I look at the night sky and i see no more stars
Just London scars
Just London scars

[Chorus]:

(beat picks up as Archy repeats the word “broke”)


King Krule - Octopus

This night won't end in time for me to see in you a warning
So close down and find your heart in the pit of your existence
You will see sense at some point

Nothings in your mind
In this space in time
So you took a ride
Now we meet inside

It's been showing me up
I've been loosing my touch
They aren't that far from here
Find the last piece is broken
It's what we need to be awoken
And our whole worlds been stolen
And our whole faith is swollen
And I probably need to hold on
So stop and think and stroll along
There was a time and place

That was alive in faith
But just as time to pray is to eliminate the afraid to participate in a play
Well I guess I stayed too long
Well I guess I stayed too long



King Krule - Bleak Bake

非常喜歡這首的曲調。

Wouldn't wake up this morning
Believe me
This might be your only warning
And you'll see
Why the rules won't slide
For seeing something bright
But darker and darker they get
As my clothes don't sweat
And start to weep
As we sleep

And everything hits you in the end
And spoils your thought stream
My heart got a hold of my head
And ripped it to its seams
My confessions seem well bled
But resolutions are only dreams
And now I'm covered in blood
On the bed
And it's a familiar scene
Cause I'm pretty sure my mind ran down this line again
Only last week

我愛他們的rap,無疑的Archy這樣也沒問題。

今年3月和Mount Kimbie合作!
Mount Kimbie - You Took Your Time (feat. King Krule)

/歌曲的含義是什麼?感覺上那是一系列的
Kai Campos:King Krule的作詞的方式是非常意識流的。不少抽象、夢境般的圖像都自然流露出來,成為一幅美妙細緻的畫作。/

新歌「Easy Easy」! 離發片不遠了
King Krule - Easy Easy


 12歲時就寫出這樣的歌。很憤怒唱出"Ow no I should've kept my receipts Cause the sandwich I bought.Yeah it's been off for a week And Tesco's stealing my money" Tesco 偷了他的錢

Well same old Bobby, same old beat
Well yeah they got nothing on me
The same old clutch, same old streets
But yeah they got nothing on me
And easy come and easy go
Well yeah I'm sure I told you so
Well they just want you for your dough
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 strife
And now you spend your evenings
Searching for another life
And yeah I think mate
I think you've got them in your sights

Well, easy easy
There's no need to take that tone
Well easy
I'm on the telephone
Man just leave us alone

Ow no I should've kept my receipts
Cause the sandwich I bought
Yeah it's been off for a week
And Tesco's stealing my money
When positivity seems hard to reach
I keep my head down and my mouth shut
Cause if you going through hell
We just keep going

You're easy
So easy
You're easy
Man just leave us alone?
I'll be one minute on the phone
