Today marks the release of a whole new kettle of fish from Nottingham’s bubbling music scene; forget the singer/songwriters and rock bands we so often praise the city for forging, allow me to introduce you to a folk pop trio. Despite only have formed in March of this year, the band are already releasing their debut EP, Are You Feeling The Same. The five track offering is unveiled today, alongside a three day celebration with Ellie-Mae Keegan (dates below).
Friday – The Flying Circus – Newark
Saturday – Waggon & Horses – Nottingham
Sunday – The Intake Mansfield
Citing influence from the likes of Coldplay, The Script and Queen, you can imagine the sort of engaging listen the work is, and with frontman Ant Macandrew’s captivating vocals, it’s all the more enjoyable. After the gentle opening of Fire In My Heart comes personal favourite off the release, subtle and alluring but determined My Eyes. With understated power, it propels the EP forward.
Piano lead and passionate title track Are You Feeling The Same follows, laying a gentle but imploring chorus by delicate instrumental. Whilst You Said shows how the trio come together to blend into a sublime combination of harmonies, melancholy and reflective closer Keep On Fighting shows the band’s Script influence through the careful storytelling.
Striking a niche in the Nottingham music scene, We Three Kings have executed a touching yet talented debut beyond the few months they’ve been together. Give them a shot – you might just fall in love with their sound.
