EP Review – King King – Broken Heal

8 out of 10

The four tracks on King King’s new EP show a lot of promise for a new album. The band, led by Alan Nimmo also features co-writer and bassist Lindsay Coulson. The duo are
accompanied by keyboard player Dale Storr, and Dave Raeburn on drums, neither of whom
now play live with the group.

Over the course of the release, they feature three original tracks, and a soulful, heartfelt cover of the soul classic (If Loving you is Wrong) I don’t want to be right.

The opening title track ‘Broken Heal’ is a funk blues song, with Hammond organ and electric guitar fighting for supremacy, whilst the forceful vocals of Alan Nimmo are displayed to their best advantage. The slower ‘Heart without a Soul’ shows a more delicate tune, with touches of Robert Cray, whilst third song ‘Six in the Morning’ is more of a jazz/swing blues tune, featuring a lot of keyboards and a swinging rhythm section.

The EP is available from the group’s live gigs, where there full effect can be seen in its proper environment.
