After a sold-out London Forum in 2003, King Prawn appeared to disappear off the edge of the map. However, there appears to be life in the old engine yet as new single ‘Done Days’, backed with ‘Solemn Man’, marks a return for this London-based band. A joint collaboration with music and clothing label Yo-Silver, ‘Done Days’ shows no sign of fatigue, considering the band’s longstanding in the industry, with its perky opening of jangling guitar complete with brass propelling the song forward revealing a penchant for ska that helps keep spirits buoyant and lyrically a suggestion of maintaining a momentum when life fails to conjure up anything conducive. The steadier ska groove that is ‘Solemn Man’, accompanied by horn section once more, is equally reflective, “Dreams that I once had are memories now”. A change in fortunes might be the outcome next year with news of a full length player scheduled for a spring release. In the meantime, King Prawn has just made the comeback single to ease any doubts concerning their relevancy in 2013, as their work is far from finished.
