To Kill A King are a quite extraordinary band who have the quiet, powerful reserve of The National or even Red House Painters, but it’s a reserve mixed with a liquid, rhythmical, joyous touch that recalls Arcade Fire, or the raw, euphoric drive of Mumford And Sons. The startling part of it all though is that at any one moment, they can sound like all or none of them.
To Kill A King have been travelling the country playing acoustic shows to promote their forthcoming headline tour. We met up with them at the beautiful Northern Flower Shop to film this unplugged version of their song, Choices.
Catch to Kill A King when they play Manchester’s Deaf Institute on February 27th 2012.
