King has hard-rock grit in his voice, but he’s also the possessor of an arch, knowing, Pavement-like sneer. His nuanced performances radiate genial hedonism, deliciously bad attitude, and, most tellingly, a self-awareness that borders on self-deprecation. "Nancy FullForce drummer Duke shared Jasten King’s tenure in KillRadio – he’s a punk and a provocateur, too, and it’s his tight snare and rough kick that puts these songs in motion. On bruising tracks like “Point the Finger” and “Ride”, the band demonstrates their tightness and their hard-rock chops with a vicious sound reminiscent of The Hives or Rocket from the Crypt. Though lead single “Alza Benet” is probably the catchiest thing on a super-catchy EP, [...] don’t call it pop – it begins with a slamming guitar-riff and it only gets more raucous from there. "Even when he isn’t rocking Southern California with Nancy FullForce, Jasten King doesn’t stop expressing himself.
The multitalented frontman is an in-demand DJ around Hollywood as well as a graphic artist for PETA/PETA2 charities. He’s a video artist, too, doing WeHo Award winning installations at several Los Angeles events as well as videos for bands such as Jaguar Love and The Donnas. So King knows a thing or two about matching sounds with visuals and he gives himself a chance to demonstrate that knowledge for “Alza Benet”.
