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.
After being made Annie Mac’s Hottest Record, Spring King are sharing their new single ‘Rectifier’ – their first since signing with Island Records and due out digitally on 11th February with a physical 7” release set for March 25th 2016.
Following a year that saw them pick up support from the likes of The Guardian, Stereogum, NME, DIY and The Line of Best Fit, along with becoming the first ever band to be played on Beats 1; being playlisted at both Radio 1 and 6 Music; and touring with Courtney Barnett, Slaves and FIDLAR, ’Rectifier’ is the next instalment towards the band’s debut album and coincides with their February headline tour.
