Four years after the release of his last album, the elusive King Krule is now headlining a tour for his recent release The OOZ. At once familiar and otherworldly, the live show is everything we’ve come to expect: heavy, cathartic, and introspective. He barely addresses the crowd, except to mumble thanks and to introduce his band. But that’s not to say he isn’t present: he throws himself into each song, combining energetic guitar-centric dance moves with his signature deep, gritty vocals.

Backed by drums, saxophone, bass and guitar, King Krule blends punk, jazz, and trip-hop effortlessly to create a sound all his own. The band stands in a row, rarely interacting with each other and lit only from behind with oscillating blues, pinks, oranges and purples. It’s a minimal setup with maximum payoff, and each element is intentional. From his lyrics to his instrumentation, everything you hear is there for a reason. The crowd is full of devoted fans, all similar in age to the young twenty-something musician, singing along to his every word as if they’ve been waiting for this day forever – or at least since 6 Feet Beneath the Moon came out four years ago.
