Exclusive - I Was A King Album Stream



If you were to say Norwegian music scene was one of the biggest black-metal toting cultures around, we wouldn't argue with you, but  we have to give the Nordic country some credit beyond the likes of vikings, metal mayhem, good beer, and a name for a catchy Beatles' song. No matter how much you may love to hate their intensely brash metal, Norway has managed to produce the likes of Sondre Lerche and Kings of Convenience, who in their stolid attempts at song writing, have managed to brand a new sound of Norwegian indie-rock. Taking some cues from these guys, I Was A King is just one more band who has broken free of the viking-land they formed in and have embraced their power-pop sound, and we've got the exclusive on their new album for you to listen to. 

I Was A King's new self-titled album was recorded in Brooklyn, in a short, three-day session. The band managed to produce a large set of well honed, pop songs within the short time-frame, creating the crafted sound heard on the new album. Though they have only been around on the scene for a few years now, they've collaborated with the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Danielson, Serena Maneesh and Ladybug Transistor, giving the band the credibility they might need to break free of the Scandinavian indie stereotype thrown upon them from comparisons to Kings of Convenience.
