Fremantle’s King of the Travellers release new single ‘Señor Oxido’

Intertwining layers of Romani, Balkan and Celtic folk into a punk-fuelled tornado, King of the Travellers summon the musical ghosts of yore from every corner of the globe. On their fierce new single Señor Oxido, the Fremantle 7-piece ride into new territory with a heavy gallop – immersing the listener in a scorching Spaghetti Western.

While the song’s lyric is a playful ode written upon the departure of former bandmate Rusty, Señor Oxido is a powerful orchestration of the band’s impressive roll call: Nathan Hull (vocals), Sam Reed (French horn), Djan Irianto (guitar), Alex Green (bass), Tristan Hull (mandolin), Josh Cutler (drums) and Ben Power (clarinet, organ). Although sounding nothing like their previous work, Señor Oxido is perfectly at home amidst King of the Travellers’ set-list – bursting at the seams with the band’s innate ability to inspire a heaving dance floor.

Since day one, King of the Travellers have been this way… a band able to get the whole room moving. It has been their constant, no matter which direction their music has come from. 2013’s The Puncha Hoedown was a rousing collection of howling folk-punk songs that felt almost like sea shanties. Building on this, 2014’s Rambling Jackson involved more instrumentation and a broader range of ethnic variations of folk music, but was again delivered with maniacal energy. By 2016’s Pros & Cons, King of the Travellers had fully developed their sound – fittingly bringing the music of all the world’s great traveller cultures and distilling it into one potent brew.

With more material up their sleeve to ensure one hell of a 2018, King of the Travellers are ready to tear the roof off any place that’ll have them.

Señor Oxido Single Launch
Saturday May 19 – The Odd Fellow, Fremantle
