King Krule
6 Feet Beneath The Moon
XL Recordings

19-year old Archy Marshall a.k.a King Krule has a peculiarly original vision on his debut album. The raw and authentic voice he uses on "Easy Easy" to a minimal backing almost comes as a shock after being lulled into false security with the commonplace music of today.

"Ceiling" has a jazzy backing for Marshall to emote against. It's just as affecting as everything else on this debut. "A Lizard State" cackles brokenly in a void of its own. Marshall's delivery is like that of a good rapper, with supreme attention to the weight of the words. "Bathed in grey" closes the proceedings calmly but chock full of disturbing images. Its sums this debut up very well.
