King Tuff, aka Kyle Thomas, is from Brattleboro, Vermont. He’s in his early thirties and started making music in his parents’ house. Spin has high praises for his work and even took the time to showcase his 2008 album, Was Dead, in the form of an oral history.
With light hooks and nasal-heavy vocals, King Tuff sounds a bit like Girls.
Tuff’s playing guitar in Ty Segall’s band the Muggers. Pretty excited to see this guy take the lead.
