Fremantle duo, Kings and Queens are about to leave our shores for their next adventure in the UK. Before they leave, they have a parting gift for us in the form of single, ‘When The Ships Come Sailing In’, set for launch at The Duke Of George on Thursday 5 December.
Weaving effortless Celtic infused harmonies with rich Appalachian inspired guitar, Kings and Queens create a unique sound that is both raw and haunting. After a year which has seen them playing at Fairbridge Festival, Nanga Festival and supporting folk duo, Edgelarks and Americana legend Justin Townes Earle, the duo have established themselves as one of Australia’s busiest and exciting folk outfits.
Walking the line between traditional British folk and Americana, Kings and Queens take you on journeys through life, death and the spaces in between.
New single, ‘When The Ships Come Sailing In’, is a fragile and breathtaking story of forgiveness, redemption and our eventual journey into the afterlife. The song, recorded at Norman Solander Studios, will be included on Kings and Queens’ their second album (a follow up to 2017’s self titled release), which is scheduled for release late 2020.
This will be Kings and Queens’ last Perth show before moving to the UK from where they will conquer Europe with their unique brand of modern folk.
Kings and Queens launch ‘When The Ships Come Sailing In’ on 5 December at The Duke Of George. Get more information and tickets here.
