This past Saturday saw the release of Archy Marshall's long anticipated King Krule LP, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon. A few months earlier in the summer, however, he quietly released a line of printed shirts on his website. Since announcing the line, called "Set Adrift," with a link posted to his Facebook, Marshall hasn't said much else about the collection. We do know he designed each print. The collared shirts come in long or short sleeve, and two styles are already sold-out. Check out the full line at kingkrule.co.uk

The shirts range from £62-£70 and are hand sewn by Marshall's mother, British artist Rachel Howard. 6 Feet Beneath the Moon is out now on True Panther and XL.


Los Angeles-based filmmakers Focus Creeps have a way with bringing out the raw charisma in Brit rock's most magnetic stars—witness their Arctic Monkey's "R U Mine?" driving vid. For the impossibly young King Krule (18-year-old Archie Marshall, who sometimes goes by the moniker Zoo Kid), the Creeps have shot the singer/guitarist roaming around London, taking trains and hanging on rooftops. The atmospheric piece finds Marshall walking the fine line between youth and grown-up, still holding a cricket bat like the teenager that he is.

King Krule's new album 6 Feet Beneath the Moon is due out August 24. Read Pitchfork's recent King Krule interview.
