King Krule drops new album ‘Man Alive!’

General News / February 21, 2020

King Krule drops new album ‘Man Alive!’

In his most mature effort yet, ‘Man Alive!’ provides a ‘pre-document of fatherhood’.

It feels as though Archy Marshall has been around forever. First releasing angsty tracks under the moniker ‘Zoo Kid’, he switched his name and subsequently grew with each release. For any sounds that didn’t fit under the King Krule umbrella he would carefully find a nook for the sounds elsewhere, be that in collaborations with the likes of Earl Sweatshirt or Mount Kimbie or under one of his various other aliases.

Now at 25 years of age he has a wealth of experience under his belt that older artists could only dream of. Coupled with the birth of his child in early 2019 it would appear that he’s taken this new found maturity into his latest album.

On first glance it has that same abrasive sound that endeared punk loving fans everywhere, but there’s a new sense of optimism in ‘Man Alive!’ that represents a new Archy, a rejuvenated King Krule and we are here for it.
