If you missed it, the debut EP from KING was one of the more pleasant discoveries I had in 2011. All three songs from The Story showcase a fresh, new R&B trio not confined to just relying on aesthetic and groove, but heavily focusing on the intricacies of songwriting and arrangement. I get a sense of enchantment when listening to their songs that I can’t quite put a finger on.
Part of me thinks it has something do with two of the members being twins and that somehow enhances their musical communication. My favorite track from them is “The Story,” which has traces of an Oriental melody and a lite synth sound that is reminiscent of some of Prince’s sensual moments. Although this is their first release, I’m hoping to hear more of those electronic textures from them in the future because it seems to be their strong suit and part of what makes them so unique.
The video above that they hand crafted by themselves, is as cute as buttons and has been making me smile since their EP was released. You can buy the EP from Amazon for just $2.97 by clicking here.
So what did you think of King? Will they be in your headphones soon?
