King Ropes Mixes Its Influences Into Refined Sound

20 Jan

With the initial sounds of King Ropes sounding grunge rock, listeners can appreciate a light ambient dream pop sound to their aesthetic as well. The right amount of drumming and soothing lyrics makes listeners experience this album, Dirt to the fullest degree. Guitarist and front man Dave Hollier shows not only his wide range of lyrical writing, but also the naming of his tracks shows a reflective undertone as well. Hollier explains that Dirt mixes the “gritty stuff while balancing out the pretty sweet elements”. Carrying a vagabond and traveler’s vibe as well, the album began in Brooklyn, continued in Los Angeles, and ended in Montana. While Hollier carries the album, credit is also due to drummer Konrad Meissner, Dylan Trevelen, Ben Roth, and Adam Wolcott Smith. A mixing of all these talents and the influences Dirt was around from beginning to end makes King Ropes a band everyone should listen to.
