‘Bloody Shirt’ by To Kill A King

Rating: ★★★☆☆

It took me more than enough listens to make my mind up on this single, but eventually I found the thought. To Kill A King are a folk rock band based in London and formed while studying at the University of Leeds and by the middle of October 2011, they released their first EP, My Crooked Saint. The release features the single I’m reviewing here, Bloody Shirt.

The song features some catchy lyrics but it’s the melody that brings to my attention the most. The chorus, ‘Get out and get gone, this town is only gonna get worse,’ reflects slightly on a more personal level, but putting that aside, there’s nothing. It’s a little repetitive and monotonous but like Only Love by Nina Nesbitt, it’s a great playlist breaker but I can’t imagine myself listening to it often.
