aKING is one of my absolute favourite bands right now. Not favourites in South Africa, Favourite. Period.
Their melodic tunes coupled with the distinctive voice of their lead singer, the raw passion that they display and their incredible live performances make them one of the leading bands in South Africa without a doubt.
I have been waiting patiently for their latest release and it is finally here. Not only have they released their new album but they have progressed with the times and released it DRM-Free!
Here’s a little taster from their last album:
The album is called Against All Odds, which immediately reminds me of Phil Collins for some odd reason. Anyways, the track listing looks like this:
Set Ourselves Up
Fork In The Road
The Heart Of A Fool
You And I
Against All Odds
Blood Or Glitter
New Clear Season
The Wishing Well
Know Your Bones
Now the key here that you need to know is that I already have the album. I paid R77 for it and would do it again in a second. I wish more bands removed their heads from their backsides and did what aKING are doing – selling their music at affordable prices online. Done. Dusted. Do it.
