ADAM PRINCE KING – Flamingos
Shiny, lyrical pop from London-born Cypriot producer-vocalist Adam Prince King. Idiosyncratic from the womb, much to his mothers dismay, Adam would often head to primary school in a midnight blue velvet waistcoat and red bow tie, convincingly telling the teacher that he had a wedding to attend after class, often caught out but rarely giving a flying fuck.
Not much has changed – as his name suggests, Adam Prince King is a man in charge of his musical output and image – from the moody, sensual, tropical-pop of debut single Flamingo’s to the honest surrender of ‘Before The Sun goes Down’ a track that could make you cry, dance & make an atheist pray all in 3 minutes, Adam writes songs du jour that are catchy-as-hell yet unafraid of vulnerability. Visually, you won’t catch him dead in a bow-tie, but his striking artistry and his effortless love affair with the eccentric-cool only adds to the musical tapestry.
Influences include David Bowie, Moby, Prince, Sade, 90’s RnB, James Brown, Drake, Andre 3000, The Smiths, Madonna.
