TRACK | Shannon and the Clams – King of the Sea

5/5 golden merles

Pretty sure King of the Sea is rock and/or roll, though it’s seen in the wild so rarely that sometimes it is hard to recognize.

There are plenty of bands in possession of guitars and drums, and they even play them, if pressed. But not quite like this.

All the pretense is stripped, and under the guts of the track are exposed a bit. And still it staggers forward with a rawness and intensity, the energy (probably eternal, huh?) is unleashed.

Captivatingly and kindly, they’re playing to the pit.

Sleep Talk is not on bandcamp, unfortunately, and spotify only lets you embed a 20-second clip (?) but here’s their other stuff.
