Last but no least, we are closing the premiere week with the awesome band KINGSBOROUGH who are back with their infectious newest single “Something Strange” where we see the band blending upbeat melodies with gritty, bluesy riffs.
Driven by old soul and rock n’ roll, Northern California-based, Kingsborough has created a huge following with their modern twist on authentic American roots rock. From stage to studio, this independent group of musicians reflects the old school “Working Band” mentality with a heavy focus on raw high-energy performances. With hard-hitting choruses, expansive vocal harmonies and blues-infused guitar work, it is clear that Kingsborough’s influences range from The Beatles and James Brown to The Black Keys and Alabama Shakes. BAM magazine describes their performance as “rocking it like the big boys used to…..in the same way that Springsteen has always done.” Building a reputation for an incomparable live concert experience has lead Kingsborough to perform with Weezer, ZZ Top, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and many more.
The band is recently teamed up with Grammy Nominated producer, Damien Page Lewis (Rihanna, The Wood Brothers, Katy Perry, Kimbra, 30 Seconds to Mars, Usher) to work on their upcoming sophomore album (set to release in 2017). The first single off the album, “Low Down”, is currently featured on Spotify’s “Blues & Roots Rock” playlist alongside Sturgill Simpson, Ben Harper and Gary Clark Jr.
