Words: Saam Das
Once upon a time, there was a Leeds band called Kid iD. Why they chose to include random capitalisation is beyond me. And now a pretty redundant question, as they re-emerged in late 2009 as To Kill A King.
Battery In Your Leg got the jump on everyone by talking about the band back in November but since then, exposure has been relatively minimal. Which is a shame as they're actually quite good.
To Kill A King recall the endearing folk melodies of a band like Mumford & Sons, while also capturing the captivating emotional resonance of Frightened Rabbit. With the depressing winter months ahead, To Kill A King provide some much needed warmth.
The band are releasing the debut single soon ('Cold Skin', see the embedded video) but have kindly given us the premiere for a free download of 'Bloody Shirt'. I guess this is an exclusive but I hate that term. Anyway, check it out below.
