COMMON KINGS RELEASE NEW SINGLE AND EP ‘ONE DAY’ OUT NOW
GRAMMY Nominated artist Common Kings is back with a new single and EP, both titled ‘One Day’ and out now on Mensch House Records.
The band is hot on the heels of their hit single ‘Champion’ featuring Kat Dahlia and continues to tour nationally and internationally.
“‘One Day’ is an uplifting and smooth tune that revolves around the theme of “riches and fame, being young and having fun,” states the band.
The new EP includes features from superstars Stephen Marley, ¡Mayday! and Kat Dahlia. Common Kings’ style and music is a collection of inspirations orchestrated into an array of head rocking beats, feel good vibes, and emotional fever. Their crazy, fun-loving attitude compliments Common Kings’ live sound, producing phenomenal hits with rock, pop, reggae, and island influences.
These influences originate from each band members love for various genres, and widespread knowledge of music.
The majority of Common Kings were born in the South Pacific, and raised in Orange County, California. Growing up with households full of colorful personality and vibrant passions for music, Common Kings’ members naturally grew up forming individual musical paths. This musical journey involved mimicking and listening to artists such as Van Morrison, Stevie Wonder, George Benson, Jim Croce, Michael Jackson, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Gypsy Kings, Earth Wind and Fire, Bob Marley and more. The culmination of these musicians explains exactly who the Common Kings are.
The band explains the inspiration behind the EP, saying “One Day is meant to be fun and crazy…like us!! When you’re in a writing session with Kat Dahlia, purchasing 99cent street tacos with the quarters you found under the couch, while staring at a lottery ticket promising to share your earnings with everybody in the room, you definitely get inspired to write about the sh** you wish you had! We hope our fans enjoy it as much as we do and we look forward to the rocking out with them at the next show.”
Ambition, passion, confidence and drive pour out of the EP’s title track ‘One Day’. Common Kings paints a picture most people dream of, “light the spliff, take a rip, we gone dance till the morning come…splish splash, jacuzzi full of cash…one day, when I have a lot of money” The American dream is alive and well, and Common Kings has the soundtrack to it for listeners to enjoy on their afternoon drive.
The band, made up of JR King (vocals), Mata (guitar), Uncle Lui (bass), and Rome (drums), is excited to share their new single and new EP,
