Extending their refreshingly creative output, To Kill a King yesterday released a downloadable collection of the Ralph’s Balcony youtube series. Conceptualised by TKAK’s lead singer Ralph Pelleymounter, ‘The Ralph’s Balcony’ series features 19 original live collaborations from the likes of Bastille, Emily Wood, The Title Sequence, Youth Imperial, Professor Penguin, and We Were Evergreen, all taking place up on Ralph’s 15th floor Shoreditch balcony. Being released on a name your own price basis, all profits from this collection will go to London’s Great Ormand Street Children’s Hospital, so get involved! Picking a favourite is however difficult but having already posted about Episode 19, Choices, (day 31) Episode 3, These Streets stands out as one of the prettiest. Featuring Dan from Bastille, These Streets is a raw, acoustic ballad that allows the stunning vocals of two of London’s most talented vocalists to shine in a stripped-back and exposed environment.
Lucky as I am, I managed to meet and interview To Kill a King at the end of October before their gig at The Fleece in Bristol during their headlining UK tour. To view the interview either click the ‘To Kill a King Interview’ button at the top of the page or simply press here!
The album is available via To Kill a King’s Bandcamp page http://tokillaking.bandcamp.com/ and can be purchased on a name-your-price basis. Any profits made will go to London’s Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, dedicated to children’s healthcare, and to finding new and better ways to treat childhood illnesses.
