King’s Girls 

King’s Girls keep things short and sweet


"Halifax's heavier music scene is really, really good but I think we were trying to stray away from the really heavy duty stuff and just play some fast, spazzy, chaotic punk," says King's Girls drummer Dylan Chew. "At first I think all of our friends thought the band was a joke, but we've been playing shows and stuff and I think people are starting to get into it." Chew, along with Tom Burke, Mason Baker and new vocalist Mike McGrath, produce the short, screamy, mind-exploding songs on Numbers, their debut album on Pint Sized Records in Calgary. Thank god for the internet. "I guess we aren't that popular here but there is this really weird supportive screamo, emo, whatever scene in North America and even other parts of the world," says Chew. "Like, we got a few emails from some people in Russia and Malaysia which is cool. That's kind of how we got hooked up with Pint Sized in Calgary. They heard us on Bandcamp and asked to help put our first release out on a tape. The internet is a cool thing, ya know?"
