Archshark King’s second album, Hopes & Fears, features 11 slices of life, from imagined and true environments touching on teenage mental health, death, fading relationships, ageing and anger. With often choral-style vocals set to a backdrop of players whose influences include jazz, rock, pop and classical as well as computer-generated, it struggles to fit a niche. And that is a good thing creatively, though not for promotion! Produce of Ladywell, London. It is released on 11 May 2018.
Archshark King is Simon Godfrey, who brings in a range of musicians and singers with musical backgrounds from rock, pop and jazz to classical.
Album: Float & Kick (Oct 2015)
