Sonar Festival Barcelona

King Midas Sound: The Art of Intensity

As part of the Sonar 2010 festival in Barcelona, FFF caught up with King Midas Sound; made up of the ever-inspiring Kevin Martin (aka the Bug), Japanese vocalist Kiki Hitomi and dub poet Roger Robinson.

In this episode, the three talk about their dedication to making albums in the days of ‘no-albums’, how to keep music intense and immediate, and their own dedication to the cause of good, innovative music.

Recorded in the aftermath of their debut release, ‘Waiting For You’, this is an exclusive snapshot into the uncompromising world of a band unafraid to shake up their audience, and crush every expectation beneath their vision of apocalyptic lover’s rock.
