NO KING BUT ME. A mantra, a mindset. The concept alone is freeing. This is more than a saying though for Trade Wind. It's a driving ethos, a way of life. Jesse Barnett even has it inked across his neck.
Aloft a sophisticated post-rock soundscape, Trade Wind ascends self-limitations and inner-demons to the perfectly paced No King But Me. No King But Me is the 7” release from Trade Wind via Other People Records (US) / End Hit Records (EU).
It’s a two-song pressing that houses the lead single from their 2019 release Certain Freedoms, as well as a B-side that is not available digitally and not on the aforementioned full length. For those who don’t know, Trade Wind is the indie / alternative creation featuring members from Stick To Your Guns, Stray From The Path, and Structures.
You will find yourself spinning these tracks, whether as a palette cleanser between hardcore records or to start / end your day. In short Trade Wind’s “No King But Me” is a high quality cut of music.
