Of Kings and Captains – Ain’t Got The Heart

of-kings-and-captains-pic-1_RingMasterReview

Swiftly proving they are no one hit wonders, British pop rockers Of Kings and Captains follow up the rousing exploits and success of recent single Jack My Boy with another spirit stoking, body exciting exploit going by the name of Ain’t Got The Heart. As its predecessor, the new single is taken from the equally impressing Give ‘Em Hell Son EP, itself evidence that the Stourbridge outfit’s sound is loaded with infectious hooks and instinctive imagination.

Sprung and driven by the enterprise of lead vocalist/guitarist Luke Wassell, guitarist JD Lomas, and bassist Dean Greatbatch, Ain’t Got The Heart quickly entangles ears in its opening melody, it the seed to an energetic and accomplished stroll ripe with power pop energy and indie pop hookery. Recorded with producers Gavin Monaghan (The Twang, Editors, Nizlopi) and Joseph Murray, the song swiftly has feet shuffling, hips swinging, and ears hungry as its Fall Out Boy meets The Fratellis revelry consumes all before.

The song continues to infest and thrill body and spirit, cementing the promise and growing uniqueness of a sound which has quickly come over as a freshly discovered old friend with each and every song, especially in the two singles from Of Kings and Captains providing 2016 with two of its brightest moments.

With new sounds in the works and an appearance at Glastonbudget   2017 confirmed, it is easy to suggest that Of Kings and Captains are about to really explode upon the Uk rock scene.

Ain’t Got The Heart is out now.

Of Kings and Captains – Jack My Boy

of-kings-and-captains-pic_RingMasterReview

Ahead of their new EP Give ’em Hell Son, British pop rockers Of Kings and Captains have released new single Jack My Boy, a mercilessly infectious slice of robust rock ‘n’ roll lying somewhere between The Pirates, Eddie and the Hot Rods, and The Wildhearts. It is hard to imagine that the Black Country hailing band could have found a more rousing teaser for their new EP, the new single taken from it one of those proposals which instinctively grips ears, voice, and bodies easily enlisting their eager involvement in short time.

Stourbridge bred, Of Kings and Captains released their debut album in 2015 to eager reactions; its success backed up by a potent live reputation which has seen the band share stages with the likes of McFly and Kids in Glass Houses among many and recently undertake a five date stadium tour with Bon Jovi. The foursome of vocalist/rhythm guitarist Luke Wassell, lead guitarist Joshua Lomas, bassist Dean Greatbatch, and drummer Kieran Lock linked up with producer Gavin Monaghan (The Twang, Editors, Niplozi) and Joseph Murray for Give ’em Hell Son and if Jack My Boy is anything to go by, with thrilling success.

A song according to Wassell which is “…about self-confidence and defying people who doubt you! it’s all about sticking to your guns and being yourself regardless of how people might put you down. It’s about being individual and kicking back against the norm“, Jack My Boy has all attention leaning its way from the initial lure of drum enticement. Lock’s magnetic rhythms are quickly joined by an anthemic bassline and eager twang loaded riffs, they in turn turning to an array of fifties seeded hooks as Wassell’s tones whips up even more infectious bait to the already catchy encounter. From there the track continues to lead the listener, drawing them towards seriously virulent choruses, they irresistible peaks in one, from start to finish, spirit arousing stomp.

It takes just one listen to be firmly involved in the song with every encounter after drawing keen and full participation. If Jack My Body is a sign of things to come with Give ’em Hell Son, the EP is a must.

Jack My Boy is out now with the Give ’em Hell Son EP available for download from all good digital retailers September 9th.
