|King No One have returned with storming new single Obsolete. Obsolete is the latest single in a new chapter for the York outfit, who have been making waves over the last few years for their brand of confessional yet catchy alternative indie.|
With a stunning live show and remarkable songwriting talent, the trio have amassed an army of fans worldwide, and become one of the UK’s most vital and adored live bands, constantly pushing the boundaries.
Obsolete effortlessly showcases this sentiment, and takes everything from the King No One creative palette to glorious new heights. Unearthing the beauty from life’s darker moments, the single sees a juxtaposition of darkly cathartic lyrical work and optimistic melodies before delivering one of 2021’s biggest choruses so far.
Speaking about Obsolete, King No One said: “Fusing 00s R&B and 90s grunge, Obsolete is about the pursuit of hedonism to mask the shame that depression can leave you with. And the first acknowledgment that you kinda suck and don’t want to suck anymore.”
King No One also recently announced a UK/European headline tour for autumn 2021, and will play a number of UK festivals this summer including Y Not and Liverpool Sound City. They will perform at the 02 Academy 2 in Sheffield on September 24th, the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on 25th September and Social in Hull on October 7th 2021.
