Just a few weeks away from heading out on their UK headline tour, King Nun have shared another new track, ‘Greasy Hotel’.
The track follows on from previous offerings ‘Chinese Medicine’, ‘Heavenly She Comes’ and ‘Family Portrait’, which are all taken from the band’s forthcoming EP ‘I Have Love’, which gets released next month via Dirty Hit.
“‘Greasy Hotel’ was written after we were told a girl had been grabbed during one of our shows,” the band’s Theo Polyzoides explains. “This was made worse by the fact the guy reporting it said she shouldn’t be there if she was concerned about this happening. I felt so angry and guilty I didn’t know what to do with myself. This was the first time we’d experienced anything like this and it was definitely an eye opening experience for us. I wrote the first version of the song in a couple of minutes. We wanted the lyrics in the chorus to stand out and I felt it was important for the audience to hear ‘Take your hands off of her’ mid set. The song serves as reminder of our stance on this, as well as helping to vent on what I feel is a really important issue.”
