Prawn have always been one of those ensembles whose musical spread shimmered as a sound on the cusp of greatness. Their knack for rendering such organic, sincere tones in their storytelling while mixing up tenacious emo—based tunes really laid the groundwork for personal and emotive connection.
Prawn have always been one of those ensembles whose musical spread shimmered as a sound on the cusp of greatness. Their knack for rendering such organic, sincere tones in their storytelling while mixing up tenacious emo—based tunes really laid the groundwork for personal and emotive connection. Amid their dramatic commentary, they managed to come off instinctive in their sonic direction and as a band that really wasn't a copy of any other. Even better, their output helped build them as an entity that isn't anything too groundbreaking but still one that's hard to imitate. 2012's Ships and a split with Joie De Vivre earlier this year compound these points and it's a pleasure to share the relief and joy that Kingfisher brings. It's indescribable at times because it feels like a huge payoff for years of hard work. And rightfully so. A lot of folks immediately jump to bands like The Hotelier, Evan Weiss' projects and so many others in the field of contemporary (dare I say modern) emo but Prawn lay down a fitting statement here as to why they're ready to roll with the juggernauts.
