Hey, King!

When you first hear indie rock act Hey, King! it immediately becomes clear that each musical moment is rendered with precision, care, and a whole lot of heart. These are powerful and humanity affirming songs from songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Natalie London and her partner, vocalist and percussionist Taylor Plecity. A formidable and boisterous live force that often results in an eight piece orchestral band, they've previously toured extensively with Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals. Their debut record, which was released last year via ANTI-, show their love for each other and their craft is tangible. They evoke the exuberance of Arcade Fire, the freewheeling simplicity of Tom Petty, and the wit-filled resonance of Fiona Apple.

“Hey King! have the unpolished tone of the early Tegan and Sara, plus a road movie feeling: naughty, untamed, and with wild energy” - Rolling Stone

“This music is singular in its brilliance with nothing to compare it with or to” - Ben Harper

“Quite possibly the music world’s best kept secret” - Vancouver Weekly

“A wellspring of passion, inner strength, intimacy, and resilience, Hey, King! puts the band on the map with a record of uncompromising energy and soaring charm.” - Atwood Magazine
