Released as a charity single for Mind, Samaritans, and Tonic, and supporting awareness of mental health and youth music, ‘The Fall of Emperor Less’ is a ska/dub-driven track centred around positive Marley/The Specials-esque theme’s of government oppression, the fight for equal rights for all and the struggles of the common person.
Driven by a strong dub bass groove, and featuring special guest Lee Thompson (Madness) and an assortment of his horn section, ‘The Fall of Emperor Less’ is a strong, if not overly original, piece of ska designed to activate both the feet and the mind.
Owing the majority of its success to its vocals and their narratives, King produces a sonically-rich track which is musically mellow yet lyrically aggressive.
Summer may have passed us, but if a powerful, relaxed, summer sound is what you’re looking for in the dark winter months then look no further.
The track is now available on iTunes.
