Fountain of Youth

Archy Marshall, who performers under the name King Krule (formerly Zoo Kid), is definitely a unique act. He’s seventeen or eighteen, has a thick London-accented voice as deep as an abyssal plain and treats the last thirty years of music — from post-punk to dubstep — on the same plane of influence. Like America’s wunderkind Wavves, King Krule has incredibly simple production techniques. You hear his voice, you hear his guitar and you hear what I can only describe as the vocal incarnation of teenage ennui. It’s rare that someone this young actually breaks out outside of mainstream pop and R&B/hip-hop, and while he may not be the most talented musician out there, he’s coming from a place we don’t hear much about past high school.

    I think someone sent me this last MeFiSwap. I *know* this song, but the ‘King Krule’/Zoo Kid part sounds totally unfamiliar.

    Anyway, yeah, this song is a sweet little kick to the chest.
