Here’s a taster of what to expect at the King Kong Company gig this Sunday at EP. It’s the new track, a slow building banger. It was recorded on the road over the last few months at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Townlands and Body & Soul.

The video was made from backstage phone footage, and front of stage footage sent in by fans.

The Waterford lads play the Electric Arena at 3.30pm on Sunday.

Tebi Rex and ELKIN – She Hated Love Songs II

Phil Udell writes:

Tebi Rex are an alternative hip-hop duo based in Kildare and with fellow duo Elkin tackle the most iconic romantic moments in film and music history,

…taking the message of the song one step further by creating a video that not only spoofs your favourite romantic comedies (featuring Taylor Swift, Heath Ledger, Ingrid Bergman, John Cusack and Humphrey Bogart) but also acts as social critique of a system that perpetuates unrealistic standards about what love looks and acts like.

And they’re also fairly bitter and petty so there’s that too.
