Bio

Margaret Helen King, commonly known as MHK, are a band from Australia's capital, Canberra. They are a standard three piece (bass, drums, guitar), but separate themselves from the masses with catchy melodies and stella vocal arrangements. Each member of the band sings and barely a song passes without a harmony that will melt your soul. Their music is described as alternative indy pop rock, a fairly clumsy description, though notable bands that MHK consider to have influenced them include: Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead and Midlake. If you care to listen, prepare to be moved, because Margaret Helen King won't disappoint.
