South London based Krush Puppies have just released this fuzzy cut of medieval-tinged, psych rock ‘Slay The Dragon‘ via Portsmouth label Strong Island Recordings. Clocking in at just under two minutes, it’s a commanding, concise track that is too damn catchy. On a darker note than the title may suggest, the track is about “transcending the monsters we’ve all had to endure”.
Speaking of the video for ‘Slay The Dragon’, Krush Puppies have said: “We found this shot of a grave that was taken from the perspective of the person being buried… and that felt pretty representative of ‘Slay the Dragon’. I guess we’re all saying goodbye to something in the song so we made a fake grave and ran around Beckenham Place with swords and blood all over us.”
“It was a culmination of just wanting to be free and with our friends again- putting any bad feelings behind us. All of us have experienced bouts of melancholic numbness so this is a kind of uprising to that, or whatever situation you find yourself in that’s stunting your growth.”
