King in the Belly: “Let’s Go” meets the expectations of old school rockers and modern day hipsters

King in the Belly is an Australian/Brazilian alternative rock band based in Brazil. The band consisting of “Ted” Bertoloni (lead vocals, guitar), Vinicius Boareto (drums), Diogo Silverio (guitar) and Luke Kiernan (bass), released its first single “Behind” in March 2017 and followed that up with another 3 singles during the same year. 2017 also saw the band touring regionally, and in Sâo Paulo, the largest city in the country. King in the Belly who cites a wide range of musical influences ranging from Australian rock to Alabama Shakes, also played a standout gig at the first Brazilian Google House during the SXSW-inspired HackTown Festival. The band’s debut album is set to be released in early 2018. In the meantime the band drop yet another rocking pearl with the single – “Let’s Go”.

There’s always going to be people who long for the days of old and reminisce about how great everything used to be. In music, this seems to be exacerbated ten-fold as older generations long for the sounds they grew up and refuse to let go of the past. Yes, older artists become influences for new musicians to rise and take shape, but the evolution and progression of musical styles is a necessity in order for the art form to keep growing and expanding.

Add to that point and there’s also a strong desire from some bands to push forward into new boundaries. This dilemma of different sonic approaches is where true rock fans seem to be divided the most. In the mainstream, a band like The Foo Fighters, were always able to meet the expectations of both old school rockers and the modern day hipsters.

In the underground rock scene, King in the Belly is on the same wavelength, and are able to meld pure ass kicking retro rock qualities with modern emotional astuteness.  “Let’s Go”, which will assuredly become a fan favorite for its abrasive guitar usage and massive rock anthem approach, crashes upon listeners eardrums. It’s a pulsating and fiery approach from the band, and one that suits them beautifully.

One of the things that King in the Belly does extremely well is present varied bursts of infectious energy throughout their songs, and it’s noticeable within the span of the first four bars on “Let’s Go”. Here King in the Belly feels like summer rock band, making music to be blared from car speakers while speeding down a highway somewhere.

By the time the songs ends, the question for making a tough appraisal arises. How do you assess King in the Belly’s latest track with such a high standard set by their previously released singles? Objectivity remains the key but at the end of the day it still is not easy. So many of their characteristics run through all of their songs, though it’s safe to say their music will always be anthemic and fizzing with vibrancy. Ready for radio airplay.

What transpires is that with “Let’s Go”, King in the Belly seem to continue crafting songs that amicably fit into their discography, yet can admirably stand out on their own. There’s a level of positivity in their outlook that radiates throughout the music they present to the public.
