KING NUN’s latest effort sees vocalist and frontman Theo dissecting the anatomy of a relationship, through the initial sparks of romance to the dying embers and the resulting aftermath. An auditory snapshot, transcending the constraints of space and time.
Speaking on the latest single, Polyzoides comments:
“Initially, it was about a relationship I was in a couple of years ago. I started writing it just after we met, and it was this soppy, doting confessional of love, full of references to the films and songs we shared with each other” confesses Theo. “I kept rewriting it through all the stages of us being together, and I ended up finishing it in the immediate aftermath of us breaking up.
“In that way, the lyrics grew up with me through the relationship. Ultimately, the song is about how the deal in any relationship is that it likely leads to heartbreak, and the ‘sinking feeling’ of going through those motions, not being able to do anything about it; opening yourself up to that pain is the only way to experience the beauty of loving someone.
“That’s why the story isn’t told chronologically – in the song every part of the relationship is happening at once, so it’s a prism of all those feelings of vulnerability and fear, but also joy, that any relationship brings.”

The video sees the band collaborating with director Flynn Mathews. Their previous collaboration came in the form of the album’s title track being used in Matthews’ most recent short film ‘Midpoint’, which starred Rina Lipa.
“I’ve loved the chance to creatively collaborate with the guys and having the creative freedom to produce something that feels as personal as my own short films.” says Mathews. “The song’s themes of unrequited love inspired the narrative of the music video for me, how one small moment for one person can feel huge for another.”
