Mandolins and Gasoline

from DIRT by KING ROPES

supported by

Malika Dahl King Ropes will take you „back to the future” with their grungy sound of the 80’s rock era. Filled with manifold sounds they sing about every day struggles. Weirdly enough, the sometimes crooked notes of front singer Dave Holler don’t seem to crack the perception of a great album. It ‘nestles right next to {your} heart’, waiting to be played – give it your full attention: is worth it. So let’s escape into the past and be swept away.
