KING WHO

ABOUT

King Who refines its sound on a dreamy sophomore release, Giant Eye, both rounding edges and expanding landscapes. New wave, post-punk, and dream pop rhythms seep through this bass heavy record. The vaguely dystopian lyrics and toe-tapping bite swim in echoing waves, wallowing in the reverb currents. The intoxicating 8-song album is packed with beautiful, soaring melodies and powerful rhythm-forward tunes, driven by the silky and emotive vocals of frontman Michael Young. Spill Magazine

Think the sweetest, catchiest elements of the early Strokes slowed down to West Coast tempos, crashing waves of percussion, keyboards and guitar lines that shimmer like the late summer sun. Pop Matters
