Joining Last.fm at next week’s Summer Sundae festival will be King Charles, the diverse singer-songwriter who has had quite a year. His debut album Loveblood was released in May and has seen an incredible 194,778 scrobbles, with the track “Love Lust” being listened to by 23,706 unique listeners alone (you can pick up the album from iTunes HERE). King Charles’ performance at Summer Sundae is set to be a memorable one and in anticipation of that he told us five acts that he’s been listening to lately in preparation.
“He’s my favourite of all the big-timers as I find the breadth of his ideas exciting and unpredictable.”
“I love Jake Bugg. I take great excitement from his songs and will take a very close interest in what he is doing and what surrounds him.”
“This girl’s music gives a suggestion of the enormous scale of the world she is describing and points towards a so far unceasing charm of character.”
“She seems to me to make hits so effortlessly while seemingly like music is a side-project that I cant argue with.”
