There seems to be a special connection between British indie-folk collective To Kill A King and love. Years ago they compiled an anti-Valentiness-Day Mixtape for us, and today, just in time for the annual celebration of that weird day the guys unveil a music video for their track No More Love Songs. The catchy piece is taken from the band’s recently released third album The Spiritual Dark Age and it’s definitely one of the strongest songs from it.
The accompanying music video takes the subject of the song – the troubles of writing good love songs after a breakup – and turns it into a more visual struggle as the band also confirms:
‘The video for No More Love Songs captures this notion of the dangers that come with writing about love. Graeme O’Hara made the video and we’re chuffed with it, apologies to any typewriter enthusiasts. It was a lifelong dream of Ralph’s to become an ink blot, and we’re glad his dream came true.’
As longtime supporters of the gang it’s great to see that Ralph Pelleymounter and To Kill A King are still going strong in the year 2018 and their recent material is indeed a testament of new confidence. They are also on tour so don’t hesitate to grab your ticket for this joyful ride. Right next to their own tour we are also happy to announce that they’ll be supporting their old buddies Bastille on an upcoming tour in April. All dates can be found below the new music video.
