“Old Highway 9” by King Washington

Rock band, King Washington, is a staple on the LA music scene dating back to their debut in 2009. Their wide creativity and talent translates just as well to the stage, apparent in their current residency at Silverlake Lounge, which brings in fans from across the city.

“Don’t Expect My Love” is the first single after returning from a hiatus from performing and recording. In addition to the single, the release includes a b-side of “Old Highway 9.” I, myself, am partial to this track. It is an emotional ballad departure from what we usually hear from King Washington. It offers a steady rock ballad, heightened by harmonic background vocals, while each of the verses lay subdued with subtle instrumentation.
