Discovery: King Cardinal

Damn This Old Machine is the latest release from King Cardinal, a country-pop band from the USA with an infectious sound.

By Jane Howkins

The track starts off as a typical country/folk rock song, before erupting into an anthemic chorus that will have listeners playing the song on repeat. King Cardinal manage to combine the different genres in their sound perfectly, and it’s great to hear a band able to do such a thing so effortlessly. There’s quite a melancholic feel to the song, but we think that only adds more to it, giving the song a haunting feel. Check out Damn This Old Machine and its addictive chorus out below – you won’t be disappointed!
