KLAMMER – ‘Everything Depends Upon the King’ Review

KLAMMER – ‘Everything Depends Upon the King’

Klammer 7 SingleWe were delighted to receive the latest single from Klammer after reviewing their second album a few weeks ago

Everything Depends Upon the King opens with some guitar notes with a slightly atonal feel before the bass kicks in and launches the track forward with a strong beat. The chorus is a raucous but controlled sing-along that reminded me of fellow Leed’s band, the Kaiser Chiefs.

The song continues at a pace with a superb guitar driven close that really rocks. The band are difficult to pin down as they have a slight Goth punk flavor but with a harder punk/pop edge.

The “B-side” of the single – High Life – kicks off with a supremely heavy bass partnering some pounding drum beats. For me, this is the stronger of the two tracks. The bass verges on Killing Joke territory whilst the angular guitars bring back that U.K. Decay feel. The lyrics and vocals compliment the music perfectly and the entire track is very high class with great hooks. It’s a very strong one-two package and Klammer continue to delight with their growth as a band.

They will be out touring the UK and Ireland with Richie Ramone and his band through November and December ’16
