Kings features the Vets’ trademark mix of old-school inspiration and new-school innovation. Call it the best of both worlds. While still in their terrible twos, the twins discovered their love for organically produced music, vibing to the sounds of Count Basie and Curtis Mayfield that filled their home every night. While the twins had one ear on vintage jazz, funk, and soul, they soon had another on hip-hop. During the twins’ teenage years, acts like A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Common, OutKast, and Goodie MoB amped up their love for bass and offered them a new, youthful voice. Add these influences to two decades of intense musical training and you’ve got a sound unlike any other out, equal parts street and soulful, gritty and sophisticated.
