‘Hung Around’ is the sound of a band who know how good they are.
When King Nun dropped ‘Tulip’ towards the end of last year, it was like an earthquake. It was the sound you’d usually hear from a band that would of been heard coming from a mile away. What made it so powerful, was that it was a jolt completely from the blue from a band with the prize gripped firmly between their teeth. With ‘Hung Around’ they’re showing off their swagger in emphatic style.
Strutting with the confidence and bravado of a peacock rolling through London Zoo during show time, ‘Hung Around’ is a track that knows exactly what it’s doing. That intoxicating chop and chuck pout is an alluring pull into a refreshing new direction, an example of the all-encompassing surroundings that King Nun could take themselves down. It’s a band showing that if they’re going at 100 miles and hour or gliding along at 20 – they can’t be caught and look just as magnificent either way. Defying the norm and booting it right out the front door in the process, King Nun sound like a band fully enjoying the path they’re carving out for themselves and revelling in the freedom that sits around them.
‘Hung Around’ is the sound of a band who know how good they are, and when that moment happens – you know we’re in for something pretty special. Jamie Muir
