Gig Review: Zach Lount

On the 7th and 8th of March Zach Lount, front man of King No One, performed an acoustic solo piano (and guitar) set and I would be lying if I said that it didn’t bring tears to my eyes.

This was the first time that Zach had done this type of solo gig (although as I went on the second night, it was technically the second) and his nervous banter was evidence of this, yet the seasoned showman needn’t have worried as the room was full of die-hard King No One fans who were lapping up his every word.

The set included beautifully stripped back, acoustic versions of some of King No One’s best loved tracks including “Say My Name,” “Millennium” and the latest single “Antichrist.”

When it was released, “Antichrist” actually overtook Ed Sheeran’s entire new album on Spotify’s top 50 viral chart!

The acoustic tracks performed on either piano or guitar as they were originally conceived highlighted the rich musicality and profound lyrics. It was a huge privilege to hear my favourite KNO songs in this form…now there’s one to tell the grandkids!

Another highlight of the evening was the unveiling of the as of yet unreleased single “Supernova.”

Indie rockers King No One are one of the biggest ticket-selling emerging artists in the UK right now, having sold out many of their gigs on their two UK tours in 2016.  KNO take to the the road once again at the end of March.
