Meanwhile, Huffington Post asked KF's singer Naseem Khuri for an essay about the video entitled "Why We Made a Video About a Boy in a Dress." Khuri writes, "While most of our recent album, Battles, does not focus on boys wearing dresses per se, it does look at choice. Through the eyes of people who have done all the right things and still fall behind, it questions what choices they have to stay above water. Do they have to sell out? Throw elbows?":
The band's Daytrotter session posted last month.
The Boston Globe said of a recent sold out show, "Triumphant... magnetic... Singer Naseem Khuri didn't just play acoustic guitar; he beat it into submission. He rendered two acoustic guitars unusable by the time the band hit its encore run... Yet even within the torrent of energy Kingsley Flood puts out live, the band distinguishes itself with richly textured songs."
