King Nun - Heavenly She Comes
Published: 12:00 am, August 17, 2018Words: Stephen Ackroyd.

For all the pristine, shimmering pop delights ‘the bands’ may wish to thrust upon our greedy plates, there’s only so far a deliberate, polished gem can take us. Intentionally self-aware, each one is an endorphin rush planned with clinical precision. And yet, there’s an itchy spot that few, if any, can reach.

That’s where King Nun come in. Rattling about like a still pissed bin man staggering through his morning round, ‘Heavenly She Comes’ has no time for airs or graces. It’s not watching its step, or considering the delicate. It’s a banger, and it has somewhere to be.

Blasting down every door, ‘Heavenly She Comes’ arrives quickly and picks up pace from there. Riding a riff into a Churchill-dog of a chorus, it’s the sort of gig ready anthem that will have the pits kicking in seconds. “I’ll be a better man,” Theo Polyzoides pleads, before barging into another run of hedonistic assertions.

A raw, pulsing nerve spun with pop sugar, any questions about just what King Nun were doing with the first half of 2018 are firmly answered. With songs like this, that impossible potential is supercharged. Consider that itch firmly scratched.
