King Kong is an American indie rock music project fronted by musician Ethan Buckler. Buckler left his previous band, Slint, in 1989 to start a new musical project. King Kong's first release, Movie Star, featured the other three members of Slint, David Pajo, Britt Walford, and Brian McMahan. King Kong would go on to feature an ever-changing lineup of performers including John McEntire, David Grubbs, and Peter Townsend.
The song "Movie Star" was used in the end credits of the 2014 Slint documentary, Breadcrumb Trail.
In 2018, King Kong released three singles: “60s Apartment Building Balcony”, “Pawnshopolis”, and “Pigeon Man”. Each one was accompanied with a music video.
On March 8, 2021, Jimmy Fallon included “Old Man On The Bridge” in his "Do Not Play" segment on The Tonight Show.
