Thousand Loaded Guns • Karin Park
Karin Park has done it again. Not content with her previous sonic assaults on pop music, the year’s coolest pop star has returned with her latest single, ‘Thousand Loaded Guns’. It’s a brilliant slice of electronic pop, and probably the most unashamedly upbeat moment on her gorgeous album Highwire Poetry.
We danced like lunatics to ‘Thousand Loaded Guns’ at her headlining gig at Hoxton Bar And Kitchen on Monday, September 10, and as well as the superb remixes that accompany the song (one which Karin told us thinks is better than the original) there’s also a beautifully shot video to throw into the mix. Following Karin is never dull, from loop peddle obsessed singing pigs to the surprising climax of the new video, we’re loving the ride so far. Put your seat belts on, Karin doesn’t look like she’ll be hitting the brakes anytime soon.
Karin is playing live tonight (Wednesday, 12) at the Square Tower in Portsmouth and tomorrow (Thursday, 13) at the Lousiana in Bristol. If you get a chance to see her live, you should try and make it, you won’t be disappointed and here’s one reason why:
