Premiere: Troy Kingi Shares 'Shake That Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron'

Monday 27th November, 2017 12:20PM

Kerikeri-based actor and musician Troy Kingi wears a lot of hats, he's acted in roles such as TK in Taika Waititi's Hunt For The Wilderpeople, and won the APRA Silver Scroll Maioha Award in 2015 for his song with Stan Walker ‘Aotearoa’. Kingi has now unveiled his sophomore album Shake That Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron, a sprawling sci-fi soul odyssey inspired by interstellar love, mystic prophesy, and 70s cosmic funk artists Funkadelic. Recorded with his band including fellow vintage synth enthusiast Ed Zuccollo (Trinity Roots), and Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle), the record can now be heard for the first time ahead of its official release this Tuesday. Here’s some words from the man himself on his ideas behind the new record…

“A big inspiration during the writing process was Shuggie Otis's 'Inspiration Information' album from 1974. Just the overall aesthetic of the album - warm, real pleasing to the ear but weird at the same time. This album ' Shake That Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron' is a fictional account of two people from different times & dimensions meeting in the cosmos - falling in love and having a child with golden feet - fulfilling an ancient prophesy written in the hieroglyphics of the coming of the messiah…”


‘Shake That Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron’ is out Tuesday 28th November via Allgood Absolute Alternative Records.
