The Music of King of Spain
Hailing from Tampa, FL King of Spain is the ambient-pop creation of Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Matt Slate and bassist Daniel Wainright. Their Brian Wilson-esque vocal harmonies, airy mix of electronic and acoustic rhythms, and spacious guitar sounds blend together to create sound that is truly unique and beautiful.
With one Full-Length (Entropy), an EP (PEEK) and an cassette / MP3 single release to their name, the duo are set to release their second album later this year.
“Entropy is an artful collection of intricately crafted electro-folk songs, built with pulsating guitars, strange ambient sounds and looped vocal parts that showcase Slate’s distinctively raspy voice. It’s a refreshingly rich and unpredictable mix drenched in reverb and spacious effects.” – NPR
“King of Spain creates intricate songs, full of sincere emotion, released by adding pastoral guitar notes and repeating melodies at just the right moments. It took Matt Slate 5 years to get back to writing songs again and while the wait was worth it his music is too good to be kept away for that long again.” – Delusions of Adequacy
