aKING – Against all Odds
Following the runaway success of their first full length album “Dutch Courage”, aKING present “Against all Odds”, their next delivery of chart-topping power tunes.
Produced by multiple award winning producer Theo Crous, “Against all Odds” introduces marked progression and a new edge to aKING‘s pop rock identity.
The eleven new tracks offer a variety of melodic moods, for example the punchy pop rock title track “Against all Odds”, classical rock arrangements like “The heart of a Fool”, and an anthemic ballad “You and I”. The melodical sing along acoustic arrangement of “Know your Bones” showcases aKING’s brilliant song writing abilities. The track “Face-brick Constellations” provides you with a lush indulgence in Southern Mississippi dark swampy guitar sounds.
The lyrics were once again co-written by Laudo Liebenberg and Hunter Kennedy.
Laudo says: “It wasn’t so hard to say what I wanted to say this time round. The writing process flowed much more easily.”
“I find delight in empty days – I take my counsel with wine.” From “You and I”.
“I know my language has always been my limit – and this slurred speech is my own.” From “Heart of a Fool.”
“Glorious mistakes are anxiously waiting to be made – in the nervous arms of a breakdown I find embrace.” From “Know your Bones”.
aKING manages yet again to capture the strange contrast of their unique socio-political situation. Whereas “Dutch Courage” had a more tongue in the cheek ring to it, “Against All Odds” is more direct, cutting to the bone. It is still driven with the infectious, sing along positive energy that currently distinguishes aKING as one ofSA’s most significant bands.
