King Krule – “Czech One” Video

King Krule – “Czech One” Video

King Krule’s debut album 6 Feet Beneath The Moon was released back in 2013, and since then project mastermind Archy Marshall has kept busy producing hip-hop tracks, rapping on hip-hop tracks, dropping tracks that sound like King Krule under monikers that aren’t King Krule, and releasing a mixed-media project with his brother Jack. But now, Marshall finally seems ready to properly return to the project that first introduced us to the young soulful enigma.

“Czech One,” King Krule’s brand new single from an upcoming 7″, is another deep-voiced, lost-soul meditation that feels like a natural extension of 6 Feet’s shapeless singularity. The hypnotic British songwriter hits a sweet spot between Sampha, BadBadNotGood, and Toro Y Moi’s Samantha mixtape without really sounding like any of them — evoking a woozy, maudlin mood through soft pings, muted percussion, and fluttering harmonies. The narcotic video by director Frank Lebon mirrors that vibe, taking place primarily on a “flight” between London and LA. Watch below.
