Hailing from the greater Philadelphia area, the Audio Kings sound emerges from a dark corner of the new wave era. Their finely crafted dreamlike pop tunes represent an idlike angst lurking just beneath the conscious world of the twenty first century. Gravitating between the spacey and the aggressive, their commitment to pop structure and contrasting indie sensibility evokes Joy Division's post punk and New Wave fringe like (Pixies, Sonic Youth, Gang of Four and The Fall ), and at times channels the Kraut Rock Kings of old.

"Local Band Crush: Audio Kings of the Third World Hailing from the great suburban epicenter of Warminster, PA (note: I have never been to Warminster, PA) -- local rockers Audio Kings of the Third World are new to the scene, but already turning heads with their spirited take on fuzzy, psychedelic, garage rock jamz. Formed 3 years back by a group of pals looking to escape the banalities of daily life with sweet, sweet rock n' roll (Hallelujah!) -- there's no question that these dudes have the attitude and energy to make it happen. By which I mean: rise like woah (like cookie dough?) on the baking sheet of the local scene. Not convinced? Check out this video for "Hello operator" -- and be on the lookout for some noteworthy gigs in future months. Next up? December 22 at the M Room. You know Vampire Weekend played there too, way back in the day. "
