One Eleven Heavy – “Tyrant King”
An end of summer treat from One Eleven Heavy this week! With the exception of a one-off Bandcamp cover, this is the first that the world has heard from the band since 2020’s excellent, Live at Jam Castle. The record caught the band in the midst of their feel good Though the pandemic break did offer up a solo record from Nick in the meantime. The first single from the upcoming Poolside, “Tyrant King,” is more in line with the headspace of a world burned through with doubt. The song, a fictitious fever dream that ponders “how self-styled tough guys always seem to be running from something. Because, you know, it’s myopic to celebrate freedom in a world you’re scared to truly explore,” as the band’s Nick Mictchell Maiato puts it. The album opener is as limber as they’ve ever sounded, with dexterous guitars weaving their way through synths by Michael Troutman on the track. This one ought to be pushing its way up the list for most anticipated of the Fall. The full record is out November 4th from their home over at Kith & Kin.
