Release Date: 13th October 2017
The London producer songwriter and musician Archy Marshall returns to his moniker King Krule to follow-up his 2013 debut 6 Feet Beneath The Moon having released his second album 2015's A New Place 2 Drown under his own name. Dense and sprawling The OOZ snaps into focus quickly and sharply his modus operandi coming into view almost immediately. Drifting and seeping through the cracks of South London like the album title Marshall casts an unflinching eye over his kingdom transforming his observations of all the disorientation and heartbreak of his youth into piercing narratives and poetry that are both startlingly honest and brutally beautiful. Throughout 18 tracks he includes a plethora of wide and diverse musical influences into his world that with each track you would be mistaken for thinking you were listening to trip-hop jazz shoegaze electronica indie-rock punk dub or even R&B. The ability to mesh this all together into something truly unique makes this even more impressive. A true modern masterpiece from the king of a dazed and confused generation.
