EDITORS’ NOTES

This Los Angeles-based trio combine warm synth textures, rich vocal harmonies, and an anything-can-happen attitude on their heady, self-produced debut. Quiet Storm sultriness and the pillowy softness of dream pop intermingle on tracks like the otherworldly “Love Song” and the swaying “Right One”; romantic victory lap “The Greatest” calls back to R&B’s past while keeping an eye trained on its possibilities. Colossal yet feather-light, KING’s meticulously crafted music breathes new life into soul.

Almost Here

handsomer,

Been (not so patiently) waiting for a full-length album from KING for years now, and I’m so excited to almost have it here! Their music fills a void in alternative R&B, because it's both very current and also very obviously influenced by earlier soul and funk musicians. I’m excited to hear even more work from them!

Let me be the first to say...

a.s.k. for beauty,

The Greatest is great!!! You won't be disappointed. I love these women and I can't wait for the album to drop. I usually don't pre-order but these ladies are special. Phoenix-Simone

About KING

Alternative R&B group King feature twins Amber and Paris Strother and Anita Bias. The self-contained trio made waves in 2011 when, on March 1, they issued a digital three-song EP -- produced by Paris -- that resembled reinterpretations of imaginary recordings made by Stevie Wonder's background vocalists Wonderlove. By the end of March, their video for the EP's "The Story" had racked up nearly 40,000 views, a number achieved with the support of Erykah Badu and the Roots' Questlove, among others. Rather than flood the market with new material, the group's subsequent releases trickled out slowly, surely. In 2013, they released only "In the Meantime" as a solitary track and appeared on the Red Hot + Fela compilation with "Go Slow." The following year, "Mister Chameleon" was issued as another one-track single. Meanwhile, during these years, they popped up on recordings by the likes of Robert Glasper ("Move Love"), the Foreign Exchange ("All the Kisses"), and Eric Roberson ("Just Imagine"). We Are King, their debut album, was released independently in February 2016. It was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Urban Contemporary Album. ~ Andy Kellman
