"Six Feet Beneath The Moon" is the long-anticipated debut album from Southeast London’s King Krule. Archy Marshall, aka King Krule, broke out two years ago at the tender age of 16 with his eponymous EP released on True Panther. "Six Feet Beneath The Moon" takes the potential evident in the EP and blows it out of the water. Across 14 tracks Archy expertly weaves incredible stories of London life, his own relationships and experiences with the swagger of a street poet, all in his incredibly distinct smoky baritone. The album, recorded mostly near Archy’s South London home with producer Rodaidh McDonnell (The xx, Savages, How To Dress Well) is stark but incredibly rich - painting with a pallate full of hip hop, jazz, no-wave and poetic influences. The album shares the eclectic confidence of some of the last decade’s most important debuts - Arctic Monkeys’ Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’, The Streets’ Original Pirate Material and Dizzee Rascal’s Boy In Da Corner. It is somehow both a perfect summary of a young man’s life in a particular part of London and a universal, deeply moving and compelling statement. Most importantly, it’s a voice that is sure to be with us for quite some time.
