about

Vulpiano mainstay King Elizabeth continues to playfully push the boundaries of his psychedelic sound. At its peaks, key, synth and string mesh together in orgiastic ecstasy; in its valleys, it is slowcore with shimmering guitar leads. While rhythmically rooted in an indie-dance pulse, there's a great deal of dynamic elasticity, with everything from fractured and paranoid breakbeat to lushly introspective acid house.

Words from the artist:

Going into the album I had the idea of incorporating my love of early 90s dance/trance music in with an alternative rock album, in a subtle yet noticeable way, then inject King Elizabeth's signature backbone through it.

This being only the second time I've had a clear idea of the sound I've wanted for the album ~the first being Miami (2012), only this time I didn't have any influences whilst making the record.

Don't get me wrong there were times when I had to hold on to the reins loosely to make sure I did not veer off from my vision, as always with my writing process it's very organic and I don't try to force the issue too much.

The result is a danceable, alternative rock album with ambient undertones, an album that can be easily played in the day as it can be at night, although I feel it takes on a different feel at night with the lights down low with each track purposely flowing into the next taking you on a trip into your own mind.

"It's not what you think it is" or is it? You choose!
