LISTEN: King Casio - 'Big Truck'

A couple of weeks 'behind' on this one but you're getting it now... it's Big Truck, the latest single from King Casio. A new (ish) project with a few tracks under their belts, the band sees vocalist Aaron King teaming up with members of Swedish-formed, London-based Francobollo (of Hoo Ha and We're Dead Fame.... love them!) It's my first introduction to King Casio, and I'd say this is one for fans of Boy Azooga, Willie J Healey and the like. Really digging the track. Oli Barton Wood (Premium Leisure, Lizzie Reid, Declan McKenna) is on mixing duties here too!

On the track, Aaron explains: "the song came to me through the convergence of my cat getting run over and the sudden end of a romantic relationship. These two events informed the feel of the song - how it is sad to lose things but also to be happy to have had them in the first place. Happy sad."
