Super Natural, King Ropes’ fifth album, is full of open spaces and jagged edges. Guitars scrape and whine. Amps rumble. Rickety pianos rattle in and out of tune. Like Montana, the band’s home, nothing is too refined. At the center of it all is singer and frontman Dave Hollier, a gifted songwriter at the top of his game, surveying a land haunted by doomed relationships and hypocrite ideologues in his odd, quivering voice. The songs convey a world that is remarkably gorgeous but also harsh and unforgiving, dark and foreboding.
Hollier sees King Ropes’ home state as a key element of his band’s identity. “It’s important to me that we’re from Montana. It’s not much of a stretch to say this place has made us who we are. Montana is an incredibly beautiful place, but it’s also harsh and unforgiving. The weather can be brutal and relentless and the distances are huge. It can be an isolating and inhospitable place to live, and the people can reflect that. There can be violence and poverty and substance abuse just like anywhere else, and the natural beauty of the place might make that harder to see. I think we’re getting better at reflecting both sides of that in the music we’re making.”
