KING WHO // Body
May 6th 2016
Digital | CD
The re-release of KING WHO's self-titled debut album with SELF Group dives head on into their dark/heavy pop sound. As a band they continue to evolve through live performance, life on the road, and working hard as a DIY tight-knit group of friends. Their goal is to create music that thrives as an energetic live performance before taking it into the studio. Once they start recording the band tries to keep it as “live” as possible to maintain the music’s raw energy. The songs on the new EP contain a dark play on lyrics featuring themes of mental and physical ailment, the re-examination of good, evil, love and hate, and the separation of spirit and body.
