King Of the North are currently touring their debut album ‘Sound The Underground’ and are cracking the back of radio across the country with their new single ‘Wanted’. The track just featured as the soundtrack for the all new BMW 2 Series commercial, running nationally.
Now, King Of The North release their official video clip for ‘Wanted’ today! The video is fast and furious, shot in a secret location in the Australian desert and produced and directed by Reggie Bowan of Ipiece Productions.
As ‘flavour of the month’, Triple M are playing ‘Wanted’ in nights and featured ‘Sound The Underground’ as Album of the week.
Make no mistake; this is a rock record! ‘Wanted’ is merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to rock anthems on this album. ‘Surrender’, ‘Ruby’, ‘Watch It Die’, and the opening belter “It’s Been Too Long’ have all the ingredients a great rock song should, big grooves, catchy riffs and more hooks than a tackle box.
Recorded in Melbourne at Hothouse Audio in St Kilda. ‘Sound The Underground’ captures exactly that, an underground rock band doing what they want, how they want. The self produced 12 tracker encompasses the best of their high energy rock anthems while still capturing the feel and power that KOTN’slive shows are known for. The “old-school” approach was taken to recording. Playing everything live in one room together and capturing the sound via the Vintage Neve desk that has recorded AC/DC, Midnight Oil, Oasis, The Living End and many more.
The unchanged line up of Andrew Higgs (Guitar/ Vocals) and Danny Leo (Drums/ Backing Vocals) will head the two man army many regard as sounding like five or more.
