King Nun - Tulip

A debut single like few others, King Nun capture 100mph immediacy with a puppet string-like sense of control.

It’s hard to comment on new Dirty Hit signing King Nun’s debut single without mentioning its accompanying video. Few two-minute, thunderous shocks to the system can be so perfectly calculated in film. All it takes is a fisheye lens, shots of drummer Caius falling off his stool, beer chugs and a claustrophobic yellow-walled room to create a sense of madness. But it’s the perfect match for the four-piece’s deranged debut.

‘Tulip’ is a deceptively sharp beast. Like Queens of the Stone Age’s most breakneck moments sped up twofold, it has the impression of something that could collapse in on itself within seconds. But these jammy sods have everything under control, adopting a puppet string-like approach to their 100mph noise.
