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), and an EP (PEEK) to their name, released on New Granada Records, the duo are currently working on tracks for a second album, and an upcoming cassette / MP3 single release. "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 œEntropy instantly launches you into a dreamscape of airy spacious melodies and effects. Tantalizing pop hooks are marred by nothing, not even the small recording budget, and find a special place wrapped tightly inside of emotional verses and words with a slight nod to ambient pop ala Brian Eno. Simply stunning." - Smother.net ___________________________________________ NEW GRANADA RECORDS www.newgranada.com
