Salt Lake City’s rising quintet, Krooked Kings releases ‘Catacombs,’ delivering a spirited blend of guitar-led indie rock that resonates with youthful vigor and introspective depth.

‘Catacombs’ encapsulates Krooked Kings’ signature blend of upbeat indie-rock, fusing poppy notes with a gritty undercurrent of grunge-inspired guitars. The track delves into the profound theme of coming to terms with mental illness while cautioning against romanticizing it. Lead singer Oliver Martin’s laid-back vocal style harmonizes with the vibrant instrumentation, creating a dreamy yet thought-provoking sonic landscape. The track, the third single off their upcoming third album, follows the success of ‘Headhunters’ and ‘On Again, Off Again,’ offering a glimpse into the band’s evolving sound.

“‘Catacombs’ is a song both about coming to terms with mental illness and the dangers of romanticizing it.”

Krooked Kings, unapologetically authentic, draw influences from The Strokes, Bon Iver, and Peach Pit, crafting unpretentious indie rock that captures the essence of being a twenty-something in America. As their third album looms on the horizon, ‘Catacombs’ stands as a testament to the band’s commitment to exploring raw emotion and challenging societal norms. ‘Catacombs’ is out now.
