This may be a bold claim, but I can truly say that King Charles (@kingcharlesuk) is one of my favorite musicians. When I first saw him perform in London in 2009, his unorthodox stage presence had me floored — I had never seen someone climb the walls of a music venue sporting a sparkling unitard all while shredding it on guitar. His hair was another story entirely! This personality and absurdity shines through in his new video for “The Brightest Lights”, which features Charles’ buddies, Mumford & Sons. This glorious track, plus 10 more gems, can be found on his debut LP Loveblood. If you feel so inclined, download the album here.
And here is the video that hooked me.
And, of course, the Buzzsession we did with him in late 2010.
