KING Announces The Release Of Much Anticipated Debut Album We Are KING On February 5, 2016.
KING is proud to announce their long awaited debut full length album We Are KING will be released on February 5 through the band’s independent label KING Creative. The first sampling from the album is “Hey (Extended Mix)”. In a review on Pitchfork naming the song ‘Best New Track’ writer Marcus Moore wrote, “‘Hey’ is perhaps the best song in KING’s discography so far. It’s remarkably blissful, recalling tender milestones no matter how modest or grand.”
KING is an innovative LA trio made up of twins Paris and Amber Strother and musical sister Anita Bias. Their sound blends an array of genres and eras, and heard throughout each track is the common thread of soulful authenticity.
Through their debut EP they garnered critical acclaim with NPR stating, “Not only does KING establish itself squarely amongst 21st – Century soul electronica with stargazing synth chords; the LA based group also stands out from many other female combos by writing, producing, singing and handling nearly all of its songs’ instrumentation.” They received raves in Billboard, Village Voice, Glamour, The London Sunday Times and Guardian to name just a few.
Along with critics the band’s peers took notice as well, with artists Erykah Badu, Questlove, Nile Rogers, Prince, and many others singing their praises.
The 12-song album was produced by Paris, and all songs were written and performed by she, Amber and Anita.
Of their live show, Billboard raved that “the ladies left the audience in love.”
