The Duke & The King was formed by Simone Felice of the Felice Brothers and Bobbie “Bird” Burke. With the good Felice name on it, you know it’s a winner.

Their new album entitled Long Live The Duke & The King, the album captures the band’s essence, a ramshackle travelling circus in which different voices tell different stories. Felice and Burke remain the central architects, but it’s a more collaborative project than its predecessor. Haskins’ gospel-tinged lead vocal on ‘Hudson River’ recalls the greats of classic R&B, while ‘No Easy Way Out’ combines Stone’s vintage soulful tones with a pop-orientated country rock sound that matches Felice’s light-hearted description of the band’s new sound as “Fleetwood Black.” Elsewhere, the band’s collective voices often flourish in the ether before dramatically taking centre-stage, notably on ‘Shine On You’, while ‘Shaky’ represents the most compelling example of the band’s progression from their debut album.
