King Krule sings on ‘Meter, Pale, Tone’ and this one: ‘You Took Your Time’. It’s the first time we’ve really heard the London producers lend their atmospheric cuts to all-out songwriting, with Archy Marshall popping the microphone out of sheer intensity by this song’s climax. He marvels on ‘hatred’ and ‘violent calm held in the depths of a tyrant’s palm’, each word more exposed than the previous. By the five-minute mark a pressure change seeps in, firmer drums and defeatist cries bursting out into the foreground.
