Biography


His Majesty the King (AKA HMtK) is a two piece band from Madrid. The band started up as solo, with Clara on her own wondering whether she could consider that a real band.

Then Nacho came along -surprisingly he could play drums!

- We’ve known each other for almost three years now! How come we didn’t know we both played an instrument?- Clara asked.

- You talk way too much, did you know that?- Nacho replied.

They’ve no intention in becoming a trio -they don’t have spare room in the car for anyone else’s stuff. So by now them two make enough noise to make you forget there’s no one else on stage.

Following the ilustrious tradition of noisy and electricity-drunk duos, His Majesty the King have made their way into the Spanish underground scene claiming an impecable minimalism inspired by the likes of Nirvana and The Breeders but also Elastica and PJ Harvey.

In less than a year as a duo they released "i can hear you're talking but i hear is blah,blah,blah" EP (may 2010) followed by their first LP "Long Story Short" (Cuervo Music, may 2011) produced by Javi Ferrás at "Garate Studios" (Guipúzcoa), with live dates all through the year including Primavera Sound, Indyspensable and Monkey Week festivals an numerous venues in Spain.
HMtK are Clara And Nacho."

Lyrics

For So Long ( Boy I)

Written By: His Majesty The King

Everything I need
Is in his greened-blue eyes
Boy just has to look at me too make me smile
Shall we stay together, shall we not be apart
The boy I like the most, the boy who owns my heart

For so long (x2)

Looking pretty cute for boy to catch his eye
Boy just asked me out on a date on tuesday night
Boy is driving me home, boy is driving me mad
Boy is caring, boy is sweet, boy is everything I need

For so long (x2)

Boy is paying for the lunch, boy knows how to treat me right
Boy is paying for the dinner, my turn to become a sinner
Take off his clothes, take off my dress
I lost my head for the boy in my bed

For so long (x4)

Si No Me Vas A Follar Por Lo Menos No Me Jodas

Written By: His MAjesty The King

This is it, you rejected me again
And I clearly see we are coming to our end.
And I'll cry, and I'll wonder why
And I will want to die like a fifteen year old, like a fifteen year old.

How am I suppossed to start all over?
I feel much tired and I feel much older
How come that I didn't see it coming?
Or did I see it but ignored the warnings?

It's OK I'll pretend that I don't care
And I'll do it for the kids, I'll do it for the band, for the sake of being friends
But I'll cry, and I'll wonder why
And I will want to die like a fifteen year old, like a fifteen year old.

How am I suppossed to start all over?
I feel much tired and I feel much older
How come that I didn't see it coming?
Or did I see it but ignored the warnings?

How am I suppossed to start all over?
I feel much tired and I feel much older
How come that I didn't see it coming?
Or did I see it but ignored the warnings?

Beat Around The Bus

Written By: His Majesty The King

I know you don't want to go
You wait, because you want to stay
And we both should call it a day
And I know because I feel the same

Oh my, this is not ok
And we're falling
And the day is now dawning
Oh my, this is not ok
And we're falling
And the day is now dawning

I know you don't want to go
You wait, because you want to stay
And we both should call it a day
And I know because I feel the same

Oh my, this is not ok
And we're falling
And the day is now dawning
Oh my, this is not ok
And we're falling
And the day is now dawning

Collapse

Written By: His Majesty The King

It was something you said that triggered the thought
Maybe you were just right, maybe you had a point
But you can't blame me, for what it was worth
was about making mistakes

You don't think I will make it
You don't think I will brake it
You don't think I will survive
But in the end...

I need to tell you about my misery
I need to let it out
Shout it out loud, so it becomes real
Then I can make it stop

You don't think I will make it
You don't think I will brake it
You don't think I will survive
But in the end... you'll be mine

You drown, fall down, break down, collapse
Slow down, leave town, give me my crown...

Is it you, Steve?
Long time no see
Oh, yes, I'd be thrilled to meet you this week
And tell you how I'm doing
Well, my life just sucks
My boy went away
My job is just crap
And I owe a lot of money to a lot of different banks
But I still got my kick-ass band
And we're writing a new song
And I believe is pretty good
So maybe you have a minute, maybe you'd like to hear it
