King Nun evoke 2006 with high adrenaline indie rock

At the start of their new album Mass King Nun ply an adrenaline fuelled indie rock, with attitude. The fast pace of the music reminds me of The Killers, the Fratellis, The Strokes and Bloc Party. It feels very 2006. MSTRKRFT, who remixed a lot of indie rock stuff to great effect around 2006, could have had a great time with some of the tracks off this album. There are slower tracks, that together with the Essex-like southern English twang of lead singer Theo Bolyzoides remind me a little of 90s bands like Shed Seven, Kingmaker, Suede, Auteurs and Kinky Machine.
