“The New Orleans based quintuplet rocks like The Beach Boys with an electric/modern twist. Their track “Honey Pie off of their 6-track EP Street Friends, is the perfect tune to listen to as I scroll down Zooey Deschanel’s Tumblr page.”
“Proven to be one of the great wild cards of the city’s musical landscape, [King Rey's] humbly forthright presentation is belied by a meticulous meld of psychedelic steeped classic rock and a soulful brand of electric doo-wop that harkens back to the early hit-makers at Stax records. An impressively produced debut for the band, [Street Friends] manages to perfectly convey the anomalous genre and decade leanings that they so effortlessly jump between in a live setting.”
“[King Rey] is everything about summer and wine and the beach between your toes and that particular ache in your muscles that is never painful, only a soothing reminder of where you've been, where you're going, how the sand is still speckled across your back right when you're sitting on a patio with a case of cold beers and laughing conversations with that alluring afterglow of the dusk.”
“With breathy harmonies backing humid, strutting group-sung hooks, the towering Houma transplants have made waves here before making an album, their '70s-warped live show casting shadow puppets in the shapes of Harry Nilsson, Three Dog Night and the Beach Boys.”
