King Nun - Sponge

Impossibly young, not so dumb, and full of fun.

Impossibly young, not so dumb, and full of fun.

Banger


There’s something impossibly exciting about a potentially great band in their first flourishes. Most have to wait years to find their true stride, but once in a blue moon somebody will come along that smacks it out of the park from the word go. Perfectly formed but with room still to grow, it’s obvious they’ve got what it takes.

Impossibly young for fire that burns so bright, King Nun are one of those bands. They haven’t tempered their craft through a lifetime of toil. They were born brilliant, and they know it.

Latest track ‘Sponge’ has it all. A sort of effortless swagger - a quiet confidence of four people who know the world is at their feet. It’s got all the tricks. From a lackadaisical lilt to an all out stomp, it’s yet another string to their fledgling bow.

When asking who the most exciting new bands on the planet are right now, King Nun are in with a shout. Give them that, and they’ll bring the house down. Stephen Ackroyd
