About King Krule

King Krule is the primary alias of Archy Marshall, a native Londoner whose peculiar combination of grim if wit-peppered songwriting and volatile baritone vocals drew early comparisons to disparate punk forebears such as Joe Strummer and Shane MacGowan. It wasn't long before Marshall made his individuality apparent with elements of no wave, punk jazz, dub, and hip-hop gradually permeating his sound -- one further distinguished by his jagged style of rhythm guitar -- and adding color to his poetic gutter narratives. In addition to his mid-teens output as Zoo Kid and a later recording under his birth name, Marshall has released three albums as King Krule: 6 Feet Beneath the Moon (2013), the Mercury Prize-nominated The Ooz (2017), and Man Alive! (2020).
