This week Stefan Aronsen is On The Air with Simon Thompson from Alvarez Kings an Alternative Indie Pop band from South Yorkshire, a metropolitan county in England. We talked about their new single Words I Couldn’t Say, Warped Tour, the music festival circuit, and Simon’s newest little family member. After talking for thirty minutes Simon treats us to 3 acoustic songs. This episode was recorded on July 13th, 2020 – Stefan Aronen was in Portland and Simon Thompson was in England.
Alvarez Kings features four lads from South Yorkshire who gleefully share their moniker with an infamous old school South American gang. The band summons pop power through timeless analog synth and guitar magic. The quartet is made up of brothers Simon, Paul, and Aidan Thompson, plus drummer Richard Walker. The band has quietly built up an international buzz since its formation in 2012.
