Just getting switched on to these guys. Seem like 80s throwbacks with a hipster twist. Liked Desire but this latest single King us a stunner. And what a voice on such a skinny little lad. Anyone likey?

Me! I got turned on by "Real" and "Eyes Shut." The music video is fantastic and I dance like that, so there. And I absolutely adore Olly Alexander. He had a role in the TV series Penny Dreadful. Anyway, back to the music: I really like king, too. I wish they would come to the US so I could see them live.

That King is the catchiest song ever. That synth riff :dramatic: Other stuff pretty good as well.

They are trash, but I guess they are better than nearly everything else that gets in the charts.

I love their new single. I guess they are a bit hyped but so far they have delivered amazing pop songs.

Not to hijack this thread, but Olly Alexander was amazing in his 2 episode arc on Penny Dreadful.

I love this song! There's a little thing in it that reminds me of early Madonna somehow.

Best dance pop album of the year so far, sorry Brandon!

I love the album, I would say it's the best pop debut album in years.

I've heard mixed things about the album. :confused: They charted relatively high in the US considering King hasn't blown up yet.

The album is full of solid, safe pop. Nothing wrong with that in itself. I just expected something more original.

They kind of remind me of Savage Garden in a way.

Yes, i feel the same. And just like that SG album i only like 2 tracks. But i feel that they will be among my all time fav for decades. I still adore To the Moon and Back and I Want You so much. And King and Take Shelter will be up there.
