The Return of Pimp Shrimp (a.k.a. King Krule) "FEEL SAFE 88 (just say no)"
Published Aug 24, 2016UK songwriter Archy Marshall has unveiled plenty of pseudonyms over the years, from King Krule to Zoo Kid to Edgar the Beatmaker. Following up last year's A New Place to Drown LP under his own name, he's now offered a cough syrup glossy new tune under the guise of the Return of Pimp Shrimp.
"FEEL SAFE 88 (just say no)" begins with lo-fi smack of sticks and a psyche-warping organ lick, which seems to weeble and wobble out of tune. The song goes dark disco the rest of the time, with Marshall offering up smooth, UK-accented vocal harmonies that reinforce the power we have within ourselves ("don't be ashamed").
