I’m pretty new to Stu Larsen’s music and I’ve really enjoyed listening to his EPs and his debut album, Vagabond. Released in July, Vagabond is a beautiful collection of songs about traveling, love, and loneliness, and it’s quickly become one of my favorite albums of 2014.
“King Street” is one of my personal favorites on Vagabond. It’s a beautiful song with thoughtful, poignant lyrics and an equally moving video. Directed by Jefferton James, the music video was filmed on King Street and in other areas of Sydney, Australia. The song and video do such a great job of speaking for themselves that it almost feels wrong for me to add on to them. Larsen explores some very difficult and personal topics in “King Street” and I admire his openness as a songwriter.
