LTTLE KNG… beginnings
LTTLE KNG are a mish-mash of musical genres, un-apologetically staying outside the box, this crafty act mould haunting vocals, cheeky riffs, dope rhythms and a collection of effects to create something a little bit interesting. Their tunes are completely accessible but at the same time, for want of a better word, still unique.
Based on the Mid North Coast of NSW, LTTLE KNG collaborators Joshua Matheson & Chris Boaz have played together under various guises for the best part of 9 years and teamed up to create some unique pseudo-pop-electro-soul vibes. With influences that include Chet Faker, Jordan Rakei, Fat Freddy's Drop, and Drake to name a few, LK combines their hybrid pop-electro-funk-soul sound with clever melodies and catchy hooks creating a cocktail of musical tastiness.
Their foray into the live music scene started in 2015, having been successful in an original song competition, they were selected support Donavon Frankenreiter on one of his east coast shows prior to his appearance at the Byron Bay Blues & Roots Festival.
Their debut self-titled EP was produced by Alex Gooden, who has previously worked with Evermore, Bluejuice and Megan Washington, at Myrtle Street Studios in Sydney, and released in June on the North Coast, followed by a brief East Coast tour and a two week tour of New Zealand’s South Island, where their music was extremely well received.
Between the back-and-forth of touring the East Coast, promoting their music, of which they are receiving airplay all over the country, snowboarding, surfing and skating, LTTLE KNG continue to spend their days tucked away in the Hinterland of the Coffs Coast, writing & rehearsing.
