“More than Paradise” is the newest song to Liverpool’s Dead King Company’s catalogue.

Dead King Company describe their music as ‘Moody Ballads’ and I am inclined to agree, More than Paradise offers a dulcet, thought-provoking backing track with solum-sounding vocals.

It kicks off with a very intricate almost acoustic style with the guitar, which is later paired with a slow and steady drumbeat and beautiful keys to compliment it’s moody aesthetic.

It’s not the angst and sorrow kind of moody though, more melancholic, almost offering comfort in solitude.

Listening to the lyrics, they’re heartfelt, honest and raw, it sounds like a lot of passion through life experience went into it with a lot of thought.

The backing track is consistent all the way through, which is great, I think had it changed tempo, it would have ruined the song.

The vocals are beautiful and soft, the only criticism I have is that there isn’t enough of them! The track consists of a little bit more backing track, but having said that, more vocals may have killed the angle they were going for.

The artwork isn’t my favourite, I feel like a black and white moody graphic would have suited it, however, I appreciate the creative thought through the blurred figure on the beach.

Overall it’s a beautiful track with a lot of raw emotion and I think The Dead King Company have A LOT of potential.
