Today Alt/Rock band We The Kings releases new single “No 1 Like U” along with the lyric video premiering on Music Mayhem earlier today. The new single is youthful and energetic giving fans a taste of the music from their past. Listen to “No 1 Like U” HERE.
This year has been one of reflection and newfound inspiration for the members of We The Kings. The Florida quintet, led by vocalist/guitarist Travis Clark is being mindful to keep their ‘Sunshine State of Mind’ and look at the silver lining while navigating 2020’s uncharted waters. With the holiday season almost in full swing, the band drop their newest single “No 1 Like U” today via S-Curve Records/BMG. The single will also be released alongside an exciting and fun-filled animated lyric video. “No 1 Like U” is the follow-up to “These Nights,” which was released in September and is the first new music from We The Kings since 2018’s full-length ‘Six.’ Both new songs will be included on their upcoming EP ‘SAGA,’ slated for release early next year.
Fans were thrilled to hear that “These Nights” hit the sweet spot with a throwback energy akin to their Self-Titled era sound. “No 1 Like U” takes things up a level, bringing arena-worthy energy to the listener’s headphones, giving fans a story that only We The Kings can deliver. Vocalist Travis Clark gets nostalgic on “No 1 Like U” after finding a high school keepsake that instantly took him back to being young, smitten and living life for the sake of impressing that one love interest. The song unapologetically celebrates all emotions felt during these times, and is told in that authentic We The Kings style.
“I was going through a yearbook to find an old picture for something with the band, and ended up reading all the written messages by my friends,” says Clark. “I then saw a message from my crush at the time saying “there’s no one like you” and that inspired me to write a song about her and my feelings at the time. It really took me back to that moment, and knowing that many of our fans are hopeless romantics like I was, I think they will be able to relate somehow.” We The Kings is known for penning songs on this topic.
“No 1 Like U” further showcases the band’s refined energy that was pulled together during a year that has allowed more time for reflection and creativity. The animated music video features what the band describes as a “high school theme”, bringing the fun and danceable energy home to the fans. The band has taken the downtime from touring in 2020 to put together this new EP, which will be released in early 2021 on S-Curve records/BMG. Travis Clark, along with Hunter Thomsen (guitar), Danny Duncan (drums), Charles Trippy (bass) and Coley O’Toole (keyboard, guitar) have found renewed drive to create music that comes from an honest perspective of being a musician and parent during a pandemic.
