New EP: The Krayolas || King of Pop

Last summer, American garage rock outfit The Krayolas released the album Happy Go Lucky, a remastered 40th anniversary edition “in Technicolor” of their 1982 debut LP Kolored Music. A welcome reissue, showing just how excellent San Antonio’s (Texas) 4-piece was back then, with hits that have stood the test of time. This week they return with a new 5-track EP, defiantly titled King of Pop. They still master the craft, it turns out. You’ll hear soulful power pop as infectious as can be, full of strong melodies, sing-along choruses and catchy hooks. Title track King of Pop (You’re On Top) stands out, but the 15th anniversary remix of organ-driven party tune Catherine from 2008 CD La Conquistadora is also finger licking good.

King of Pop is out digitally via Saustex Records. Add to wantlist: Bandcamp
