Live Review: King Charles - The Academy, Sat 21st Feb
Review by Claire McConnell
Recognisable by his penchant for flamboyant and theatrical fashion, his ability to pen the perfect pop tune with undeniable nuances of glam, afro- beat, folk hip-hop, rock & roll and country, the new-wave force that is King Charles rolled into Dublin’s Academy last Saturday.
Overall, King Charles delivered on my expectations; I came, I sang, I danced and had a great time as did my gig buddy who was entirely unfamiliar with his music. The new material shows great promise even if upon first listen, it tends lean heavier on the folkier side than the exuberance of LoveBlood.
