King Krule: TAS In Session


Archy Marshall, who goes by King Krule, is a 19-year-old London songwriter with a caustic voice and a candid perspective. Pale and reed-thin with wary, haunted eyes, King Krule is a paradox onstage, a slight boy with a pugilist's bearing. That tone runs through his wiry, agitated debut, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, revealing youthful bravado underscored by woe.

King Krule begins an Australian tour this week, but when he visited New York late last year, he stopped by The Alternate Side for a session.

Below, watch videos of King Krule live in Studio A playing "The Octopus" and "Cementality" from 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, out now on XL Recordings.
