Today, Los Angeles based trio King Shelter shared the premiere of their new single “Teeth & Claws.” It’s the second track taken from their upcoming debut album $hame due out March 30th, 2018 on Broken Entertainment. The band will also be doing a short run of West Coast dates next month including an appearance at You’re Going To Hate This Fest with The Frights.
While the first single “Pick Your Poison” added extra grit to the sound King Shelter has been pursuing since their breakout EP Failure, “Teeth & Claws” leans into the pop sensibilities they never abandoned and further shows off the range achieved throughout their forthcoming debut. The background percussion, subtle guitar licks and feedback that are layered over the stuttering beat build to a greater whole, adding to the mysterious air of the track. Lead guitarist and vocalist, Taylor Hecocks’ melodies throughout “Teeth & Claws” is where the decided poppiness shines through the ambient and warped instrumentals. About the track Hecocks’ says “‘Teeth & Claws’ is not only an observation of structured religions underbelly, but also an observation of the desires that individuals deem as a crutch for contentment. It seems more beneficial for ones well being to simply be content and to strive for that in what they have, not in what they want. Power is deception.”
