Hard working bands tend to flock our way, and To Kill A King were just another example of one we snatched mid-take off. Coming off of their biggest UK headline tour and support slots for Bastille and Dog Is Dead, To Kill A King re-released their debut 'Cannibals With Cutlery' on Xtra Mile in 2013. Having built a steady friendship and shared a fanbase with Bastille, on numerous tours, their second, self-titled album was released in 2015. This demonstrated a more widescreen scope.

Brass lingers over songs while the central pulse of drums, guitar, piano and voice ensure both a journey and a destination. Comparisons will date, but it feels like their songs and musicality won't. You could call it orchestral, you could say it has dynamism, and you might even point to its fragility at times. You'd be right and wrong. It's all of these and more. Whether it's as far as the clouds or beyond our stratosphere entirely, To Kill A King are on their way.
