King Nun Release New Track Greasy Hotel From Forthcoming 'I Have Love' EP

Friday, 19 October 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

King Nun have shared a new track from their upcoming debut EP, 'I Have Love'.

Greasy Hotel is the fourth song to be shared from the rising Londoners' forthcoming release, which drops in November via Dirty Hit, although an exact release date has not yet been announced.

The new song follows previous offerings Chinese Medicine, Heavenly She Comes and Family Portrait. Discussing it, vocalist Theo Polyzoides said:

"Greasy Hotel was written after we were told a girl had been grabbed during one of our shows. This was made worse by the fact the guy reporting it said she shouldn’t be there if she was concerned about this happening. I felt so angry and guilty I didn’t know what to do with myself. This was the first time we’d experienced anything like this and it was definitely an eye opening experience for us. I wrote the first version of the song in a couple of minutes. We wanted the lyrics in the chorus to stand out and I felt it was important for the audience to hear 'Take your hands off of her' mid set. The song serves as reminder of our stance on this, as well as helping to vent on what I feel is a really important issue." 

The band will accompany the EP's release with a headlining tour, with stops lined up Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, Glasgow, Leeds, Nottingham, Norwich, London and Bristol.

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Cool With The Bargain Bin: Mike Pace Investigates The Pop Form On 'Smooth Sailing'
Thu 04 Oct 2018
A few weekends ago there was a sale at a record shop in the next town over. Their stock list had ballooned, taking over a small warehouse space on a suburban street. Pretty much everything had to go, and it was going cheap. The bargain bin has no respect for reputation, so nestled among the trashy cock rock LPs were rough diamonds and certified gems; ambitious works that shifted serious units and ambitious works that were chalked up to folly back when labels were paying for things like that.

There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.
Boygenius: The Badass Supergroup We've All Been Waiting For

Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
