He may be only 23, but Archy Marshall – who hails from London and performs under the moniker King Krule – already has the makings of an iconoclast.
With a willingness to experiment and cross-pollinate genres, Marshall is redefining what it means to make punk music – or soul, R&B, jazz, hip hop, darkwave, slacker beat poetry, or indie rock, for that matter. Alongside his sublime guitar playing, his distinctive baritone voice adds another layer to his cult underground status, forged, along with his undisputed creative genius, with the critically acclaimed, statement-making debut album 6 Feet Beneath the Moon.
After performing here in 2014 and living up to the hype, King Krule returns to New Zealand for his first headline show, joining the Festival Playground line-up for his Auckland Arts Festival debut with songs from his latest album, The Ooz.
