King Krule – Octopus
When King Krule hit the indie scene under the name “Zoo Kid” he raised more than a few eyebrows. Here was a red-headed 16 year old british kid playing dreary guitar moaning about when “hate runs through my blood.” Something was weirdly appealing about his dejected tone. “Octopus” brings back a very similar feel with its jazzy, muffled sound. King Krule may have found a niche, let’s just hope he can keep it.
