Theres a sense of wonder that permeates throughout every song indie rock band Hey, King! has written. Canadian songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Natalie London and her partner, Tucson, AZ vocalist and percussionist Taylor Plecity, approach music with a childlike curiosity and adventurous spiritfitting for a band whose name comes from a Where the Wild Things Are line. Their 2020 debut EP Be Still was raved by Under the Radar Mag as heartfelt indie rock with songs that showcased London and Plecitys ability to turn tragedy into an exuberant celebration of life and love. But now, the band finally follows it all up with their highly-anticipated self-titled debut LP.

Produced by 4x Grammy winner Ben Harper, Hey, King! is a dazzling 11-track collection that matches the overwhelming emotional intensity of the bands live show, a concert experience that Vancouver Weekly called a powerhouse and quite possibly the music worlds best kept secret. In fact, many of the songs were directly informed by the 2018 North American tour where Hey, King! opened for Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals. Many of the bands rawest early songs dealt with Londons years-long, near-death battle with Lyme disease and her recovery. London explains: With all the uncertainties, insecurities, and worries, you just say I dont know where Ill be or where Im going but I do know its going to be beautiful. This is the ethos of Hey, King! and hearing these songs will give you that same optimism, even when things are dark.
