Spring King is the brainchild of production virtuoso Tarek Musa who began this project by ripping out a disused bathroom in his house, setting up a drum kit and practice amp and put to task writing, recording and mixing a song each day in his ramshackle studio. Tarek was then joined by Peter Darlington, James Green and Andy Morton. Impressive and stylistically diverse tracks from these sessions followed, and ‘Let’s Ride’ and ten-track demo ‘In All This Murk And Dirt’ emerged online creating an instant buzz.
‘Mumma’ was released early 2014 and received high praise from The Line Of Best Fit, NME, FAKE/DIY, Clash and Pigeons & Planes. They were hand-picked by Huw Stephens to play Latitude festival, and following their performance at The Great Escape, were crowned by the NME as one of the top ten new bands of 2014.
Spring King’s EP ‘Demons’ was released in September 2014 (8/10 NME) and their track ‘Not Me, Not Now’ featured on the Rough Trade NYC compilation 80N7. ‘They’re Coming After You’ EP was released on April 20th 2015. The lead track ‘City’ was premiered on Brooklyn Vegan and listed in NPR’s Top Austin 100, preceding a hugely successful SXSW where the band played the BBC Introducing / PRSF showcase. On their return Spring King jumped straight on tour with Courtney Barnett.
