Kings Dead - Honest Abe

Posted 3 years ago
Tags: Kings Dead , Indie
Producer:
Alex Mendoza
Album:
None (Promo Single)

If I were to earn a dollar for every replay the latest record from Kings Dead will get, I’d own about a bazillion pictures of Honest Abe. While the duo have put The Dean’s List behind them, they still have the same energy and passion as they did when they first graced our pages in March of 2011. Setting this stage for this edgy, yet energetic cut, Alex Mendoza cooks up a spry, enigmatic instrumental driven by a foggy synth. Atop the beat, emcee Sonny Shotz delivers his grind-oriented bars in an ardent flow with a quirky, yet gritty vibe. While Honest Abe packs an eclectic array of musical elements, Sonny and Alex manage to weave the diverse threads into a cohesive, rewind-worthy end product. Honest Abe is not attached to anything larger, but those craving more are highly encouraged to check out the group’s last Booth feature, June’s Not a Worry.
