Raven King – Armilla

Raven King has been hailed as an eerie grunge rock fusion between Nirvana and Queens of the Stone Age, but my favorite track off their self-titled release is a bit more subdued. “Armilla” is a dreamy stroll through the woods with babbling creeks, sweetly tender guitar, soft vocal harmonies, and the echoes of sliding metal. It’s a bittersweet collage that both bends and bolster’s the group’s creative sound.
