Archy Marshall has gained a strong following over the past couple of years, first as Zoo Kid before reigniting as King Krule and putting out Octopus/Rock Bottom with Rinse. The teenager’s pinball relationship with guitar music, blues, beats and dubstep elements could only happen in London – paired with that heartfelt growl and aversion to interview, ahead of his awaited LP Six Feet Beneath The Moon he’s a force to be reckoned with, bordering mythic.

When musicians play with clothing, one of two things happens. For hip-hop’s biggest – Jay-Z, Wu-Tang – the template is a fully-fledged clothing line, more epic than the other extreme of indie’s sticking-a-print-on-a-Gildan-short-sleeve. Given Marshall’s history of doing it his way and melting of styles, he’s fallen in-between, coming up with Set Adrift, a series of nine shirts he’s taking to the stage in, twisting African print.

Announced typically without fanfare on Facebook this afternoon – one link, no explanation – try your best to rock one with the ease he does.
