Discover: Come at the King create pure guitar rock


London-based rock and rollers Come at the King have released their debut EP ‘Crazy Ugly Beautiful’.

Having only started to release music this year, the trio draws on mid 90’s Britpop and the blues-infused sounds of the early 00’s garage rock revival to create pure guitar rock.

The EP includes the title track which is your standard gritty riffed song but feels a bit repetitive and very simple in sound.

When you get to ‘Hanging On’ and ‘Frauds’ the band’s music is brought to life with rhythm, energetic riffs and snappy vocals that will get you jumping and tapping to the beat. The EP also includes ‘Praise You’, a brilliant garage rock take on the 1998 original by Fatboy Slim.

With clear influences from The White Stripes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Strokes, the band have been getting plenty of bookings for live shows at some of London’s most iconic venues with an explosive live sound and memorable, energetic performances.

Their next show will be at in Camden Assembly on December 14th. Tickets are available here.
