Since then, I have managed to glean a little more information and background:
SPRING KING is indeed a new band and like all new bands – they are totally skint! This is why at the moment they have no decent photos or ANY PR material in fact! The band is basically the project of music producer and engineer Tarek Musa who started writing his own music last March and made available a track called ‘ Lets Ride,’ that landed a small sync with Adidas and was featured on Abeano.
Quite how this happened remains a mystery to Tarek, but it obviously showed the same sort of instant appeal that attracted me to the three tracks LOUD HORIZON featured … (and have done so again.)
Tarek’s musical ethos is to write and record in the one day:
“I really like the idea of getting something done in a day and seeing if I can enjoy it. Obviously this means some songs aren’t as good as others but that’s fine – for me this project is literally about making something, anything.
The whole process is done internally by me. It’s all recorded in a downstairs bathroom which is disused due to disrepair: (its the only room I’m allowed to make noise in really!)”
There are four other people in the band along with Tarek, but owing to the lack of quality musicians in the area that are not already tied up with work, the line-up is currently subject to frequent change, with the exception being guitarist Peter Darlington who has been a part of SPRING KING since day one.
So there you go – a little more info on a band that LOUD HORIZON certainly feels even at this early stage has much to offer.
