about the band

Experimental in approach and execution, King Ropes blurs the lines between seemingly conflicting tones and aesthetics – the result of a life spent absorbing countless musical histories and the ways in which sounds and songs work. King Ropes incorporates the spark and genius of artists as varied as the Pixies, The Velvet Underground and Willie Nelson into a singular perspective without sacrificing the distinctiveness of those separate voices.

Vocals, Guitar, Noises / Dave Hollier
Guitar & Synths / Ben Roth
Cello / Sam Hollier
