Hailing from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Lilac Kings were recently signed to We Are Triumphant and their debut EP, What Brings Us Back, has been widely promoted. Naturally, there is a fair amount of hype here – the six figure listening count on Spotify alone makes that obvious – and thankfully for us, it is justified.
Their sound is compelling, with their material mainly made up of post-hardcore tracks that each have a subdubed ambient touch to them, with the go-to pieces being Answer Me, For When You’re Dreaming and Shiver. We admire it, and we believe it will help them establish an identity in the long run.
Garnish all that with a regular showcase of hooking lyrics and sturdy vocals which stretch to an insanely high pitch, and you have a damn good first effort here.
