The last couple of years, redheaded Archy Marshall was playing gigs in England after school and on weekends, calling himself Zoo Kid (top video); this year, the 17-year-old singer-songwriter goes by King Krule (bottom video), and is making a name outside Blighty, at music festivals in like, say, France. Says the New York Times about the boy: “A pleasant dissonance arises when he opens his mouth, and from his slight body emerges a deep, rich sound. His barked lyrics are first person and loop through cryptic, emotionally raw experiences. A dubstep influence is there….” So forget about that tired old Christian, Justin Bieber, and binge on the ginge.
