King Nun exploded onto the London live scene two years ago, and remain one of the capital’s most exciting outfits, building up a fierce live following around the UK. After releasing a string of hype-amassing singles in 2017, the four-piece decided to do things differently to their peers, and took a considerable amount of time off to hone everything in.
They returned with a forward-thinking debut EP in tow, which staked their claim as a band ready to explode in 2019. Released in November 2018 via Dirty Hit (The 1975, Wolf Alice, Pale Waves), I Have Love was a remarkable release, tackling a multitude of issues, from dysfunctional family life to abuse and groping at gigs, all centred about love’s many forms, but put through the chaotic punk filter that defines the band and their influences. It’s an informed, meticulously crafted release that sets the tone for what the Wandsworth quartet can do when they release their debut album later this year.
