Orange County group King Shelter, dub their music “salad rock”, which combines surf, grunge, alternative and more. Their latest song is called “Everything Hurts” and is a great example of their funky sound – check it out!

Here is what Taylor Hecocks of King Shelter had to say about the song: “‘Everything Hurts’ is my grandfather’s story. Life is hard. The American dream isn’t really a dream; it’s a vortex of preoccupations. But after all is said and done, the corner store is still gonna be selling those sweet cowboy killers n vodka. For the Krispis giveth and the Krispis taketh away.”
