King Capisce is a project by long term friends Roshan Lal - Bass, Thomas Ashfield - Drums, Tim Feben - Guitars & Synths, Richard Harrison - Sax, Alex Baker - Sax. Momento Mori is the third album from the band, and since their debut back in 2011 they've built strong support for their dynamic, carefully constructed arrangements that have been described as
“Frantically intelligent instrumental jazz”- Drowned In Sound
“An exciting cross-genre talent, fusing jazz with other influences to create a sound that is unmistakably their own” – Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music
“Jazzy post-rock gold done to a ludicrously high standard” - Artrocker Magazine.
They've performed widely alongside established modern Jazz-crossover bands like Polar Bear, GoGo Penguin and Led Bib, and more further afield acts like Dub legend Lee Scratch Perry, Electronica breakthrough Lapalux and Hip Hop pioneers Red Snapper, while also drawing comparisons to rock outfits like The Mars Volta and Do Make Say Think. The diversity of parings over the years do well to illustrates the broad, cross-over appeal of the band something they plan to take to the next level with their latest release. Their last UK tour saw the band perform a set designed for large spaces, like churches and Cathedrals, with notable 400+ attendance shows in London Union Chapel and Sheffield Cathedral.
With their most accomplished work to date, the band have poured their soul into a record that will reveal more with every listen, from delicate to brutal, from cinematic to wall of sound.
“It could easily have been them on the Mercury Prize short list – maybe next year” - The Guardian.
