King Shelter is a Salad Rock band from Los Angeles, who are previously known for their surfy pop punk hits.  Also featuring their “Holy Ghost” single, but may have moved on to reinvent their sound to a distorted, drippy, and riverbed sound.

The songs on the Failure EP reflect messages perseverance despite hardship and self-doubt. Holy Ghost and Failure  are the two strongest songs on the EP.  “Luv Sub” is a song about someone who is intimidated by another’s love interest, but is not in the social situation to win that person over. While “People Change”,  shows
a reluctance of a break up and not being able to let go. The only thing that brings this EP down is the end track, “….But Bye”, which seems a bit out of place. I think the band maybe felt they  the track needed to put it in.

Overall I give this EP an 87%. I cannot wait for the next to hear what’s coming from the band next.!
