Interview: Folk-Indie Band To Kill A King – @tokillaking

Last week folk-indie band To Kill a King performed three back to back shows across the capital taking multiple venues by storm. I was lucky enough to both attend their first night at The Borderline, Soho and to chat to Ben (synth + vocals) and Josh (drums) ahead of their second night at Oslo, Hackney. D: How was last night? Josh: Yeah, fantastic, it had been a really long time since we gigged! Ben: I felt like it went well last night, considering how long it had been. D: You guys were incredible, you looked like you were definitely...

Aged only 20, Sigrid is earning international fame with her single ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’, coming from an EP of the same name, which is no stranger to all the big radio stations, playlists, you name it and Sigrid is on it. Before the international fame, Sigrid had already achieved success in her home of Norway back in 2013 with her single ‘Sun’, that managed to send her to festivals around the country, aged only 16. 2017 is a different story, with Sigrid now splitting her time between Bergen, Norway and London. ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ is a track...

To Kill a King Give Us Another Taste of LP3 | @ToKillAKing #ToKillAKing

London based folk-rock meets indie-pop band To Kill a King are back with their new single ‘The Good Old Days’, the second track we’ve been graced with from their upcoming third studio album.

Less morbid, more pop is four word summary of The Good...

Don’t Kill My Vibe – Sigrid’s Latest EP @thisissigrid

Aged only 20, Sigrid is earning international fame with her single ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ which is no stranger to all the big radio stations, playlists, you name it and Sigrid is on it. Before the international fame, Sigrid had already achieved success in her home of Norway back in 2013 with her single ‘Sun’, that managed to send her to festivals around the country, at the young age of 16. 2017 is a different story, with Sigrid now splitting her time between Bergen, Norway and London. ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ is a track with an unusual origin: a recording session with a middle-aged man which, put frankly, killed her vibe. The song’s success has timed perfectly, after being named Hottest Track in the World Right Now on Radio 1, it’s lined up to become the sound of the summer, having racked up over 12 million plays on Spotify alone. A girl who almost ended up studying law before her brother pushed her into music has now released one of the catchiest EPs in recent times. On the aptly named ‘Don’t Kill my Vibe’, ‘Plot Twist’ follows the title track with a distinctly Sia feel (especially around those ‘shots fired’ lines) that Sigrid works so well. This is pop with a heart, emotion and deep feeling. At just 20 years old, she has achieved which many struggle to ever...

From Dying To Booming In Just 10 Years – Is Vinyl Back?

Vinyl was dead. At least it was thought to be in 2006 when vinyl sales hit an all time low. Fast forward to December 2016, when vinyl record sales alone, not physical music overall, surpassed digital for the first time in music history. Now vinyl is well and truly back on the scene. What changed in those 10 years? The dawn of Record Store Day, having recently celebrated it’s 10th anniversary, coincides perfectly with vinyl’s bounce back. RSD is an annual celebration of independent record stores and vinyl music with tons of records only available to buy for this one...
