Kingsley Flood are one of
Boston’s most beloved live acts. They deftly
combine the sneer and energy of punk with roots Americana without a hint of irony. Think of
Arctic Monkeys as a folk band. They celebrate all their influences equally, and
are right on the cusp of breaking through nationally. Since forming in 2009,
they’ve won two Boston Music Awards and twice at the Boston Phoenix (RIP) Best Music Poll. They released their latest album,
Battles, back in February. It’s
filled with pop hooks, raucous sing-a-longs, and is destined to propel them to
stardom. Do not miss them when they make their Newport debut on Friday.
