28 Aug Rolling Stone Germany
The Duke & The King are hogging the latest issue of Rolling Stone Germany, with not only a glowing four star review for debut album “Nothing Can Stay Gold” but also top spot in the Critics charts.
We have not translated the whole review, but we were taken by these excerpts;
“The duo created ten fascinating beautiful happy-sad-songs that will be part of the best we heard of in 2009, till the end of this year and beyond.”
“Singing about New Yorks street kids in the 80s, about the parking lot that Jesus forgot about and mama’s bad pills, and thereby being rooted that deep in the 70s […] while letting it sound as if it really concerns us nowadays – no, there was no other before that managed it that convincingly and affectingly like Simone Felice.”
“”And, boy did I want my MTV” – you never expected such line affecting you that strongly.”
“Golden moments, that will stay.”
