The unique sounds of 24-year-old musician King Krule, a.k.a Archy Marshall, filled the Fillmore Philadelphia on Wednesday night.
Playing behind his 2017 record, The OOZ, he and his band entranced local music lovers with the sounds that make up the record—everything from rock to jazz and hip-hop.
He punched the air with his bloodied-mouth vocals and spurts of guitar rage, and got the crowd particularly amped when he went into “Dum Surfer.” The song, which chronicles some of his youthful mishaps in a stream-of-consciousness style, had the audience singing along in ecstatic bursts, showing Krule’s deep connection to his audience.
Led by Gio Escobar, Standing on the Corner opened the show with an array of genre-bending material.
With a hip-hop style that reaches towards jazz and beyond, Escobar and the rest of his band have a knack for taking songs in unexpected directions.
