Prolific North East songwriter Trev Gibb has lulled his alter ego, King of the Sea, into a gentle slumber with his new EP Secret Heroes.

A marriage between songs without a home, the EP weaves a tapestry of sultry melancholic delight. Fossils ushers in a whimsical start, with sauntering guitar and strings while Gibb’s tender bellow glides through an emotional deliverance; The Particle And The Wave shoots us across the stars into a cosmic waltz; while Bad Dream is certified cosy hot toddy drinking music. A tribute to someone dearly departed, Last Year will leave the hardest of hearts sobbing, while Frequency grandly brings the curtain down.

With Secret Heroes, Gibb has etched his name into the pantheon of sublime North East alternative folk singer-songwriters.
