Info:

Now a Topshelf classic, Kingfisher is Prawn at their best. Mixing a tactile post-rock sentiment with the hopeful practicality of a punk mindset, Prawn have created something extraordinary here. A dense ocean of reverb and synth pads triggers subtle mood shifts that take indie/emo songwriting into an entirely new and exciting direction.

With beautiful mixes of layered vocals, clever production and crisp instrumentation, Prawn don't just rehash the who’s-who of '90s noise—they craft textures that roll out like a soft carpet of meaning in a cold world. Definitely one of our favorite releases.
