Kingsley Flood – Try

Americana rock band Kingsley Flood mostly resides in Boston, but frontman/songwriter Naseem Khuri lives here and brings a healthy dose of DC intellectualism to the band’s raucous live shows. In “Try”, the second single from KF’s sophormore album Another Other, Khuri transforms the song’s opening line “If these walls could talk to me I’d politely decline” into a gorgeous slo-mo tour of DC’s many large-scale murals. A few of these I’d seen in well-known spots, but I honestly had no idea we had so many (at least 61 according to this Curbed post!). I have a feeling even more will spring up in the next few years in our besieged town.

Kingsley Flood – To The Wolves

Kingsley Flood mostly live in Boston, but singer Naseem Khuri calls DC home, so we can share custody of this dynamic Americana rock band as long as they keep playing shows here. Their new and poignantly timed album is called Another Other and deals partially with Khuri’s racial identity as a Palestinian-American. Kingsley Flood is an interesting mix of the thoughtful, meaningful lyrics many DC bands pride themselves on, alongside fiddle-infused rock evolved from Boston’s prominent folk scene that spawned Guster and Dropkick Murphys. We speak from experience that their live show is top-notch, so don’t miss them celebrating their new album release alongside two of our fave DC acts, Fellow Creatures and Louis Weeks, Saturday night at Rock & Roll Hotel. Watch the band get kidnapped mid-song (by whom??) in their newest music video for “To The Wolves”.
