Fremantle based folk duo ‘Kings and Queens’ will be releasing a new single on Friday 6th December shortly before moving to the UK to pursue their music goals with a farewell gig at The Duke of George in Fremantle with guests Jere Sosa and BR Dalton
Kings and Queens walk the line between traditional folk and Americana, weaving together Celtic infused harmonies taking listeners on a journey through life, death and the journey in between.
Their debut album (which features 89.7FMs Song of the Year ‘Cries of the Fallen’) features a haunting set of songs which focus on death, regret, hope, faith and even the end of the world.
“Our inspiration is drawn largely from fiction, history, myth and legends. Songs were a way of passing stories down through the generations, we want our lyrics to feel like stories from a different age yet still feel rooted in today’s world.”
Since forming in 2016, the duo have gone on to play across Australia and the UK, featuring at many festivals, Including Fairbridge Festival and are set to headline Nanga Festival later this year and have supported Nashville based virtuoso Daniel Champagne, BBC Radio 2 folk duo of the year Edgelarks and Americana legend Justin Townes Earle.
Kings and Queens are currently working on a follow up to 2017’s self-titled album scheduled for release in 2020.
