Mixing blues, jazz, and psych rock in a special mix I’ve never heard before, the NY-based rockers King Crash dropped their latest single The Man in the Iron Mask on the 20th of October 2023. Showing their musicianship and writing skills in the perfect form, King Crash are taking us on a beautiful sonic journey. Let me tell you more about it.
King Crash‘s touching arpeggios, soothing flow, and warm vocals channelled a lot of emotions, making me want to listen to more right from the 1st couple of seconds of The Man in the Iron Mask. King Crash has a haunting pace with a smooth irresistible groove and a swaying jazzy flow, all beautifully arranged with heart-hitting melodies in a dynamically interesting structure with a catchy progression that pushes its sound forward organically without compromising the mood. The expressive vocal melody led the song’s subtle shifts, tenderly guiding the listeners throughout The Man in the Iron Mask’s twists and turns while the guitar lays lovely fluid licks and solos, keeping the listeners fully hooked and following such heartfelt composition.
The Man in the Iron Mask is a solid tune with extremely fluid melodies and deep multilayered sound, showing King Crash‘s well-knowledge of their sound and direction, their detailed writing, and their will to experiment and create a unique sound that’s their own. Looking forward to more from King Crash, keep on rocking guys. Cheers!
