About the band:
Portland, OR dreampop/post-punk band King Who release a powerful sophomore album at the end of the week, produced by The Thermals frontman Hutch Harris. The rhythm-centered songs create entrancing textures for the band’s often ethereal sound that’s highly original.
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.
Giant Eye was produced by Hutch Harris of The Thermals and recorded by Victor Nash at Destination: Universe! King Who joined the growing SELF Group label roster in 2016, releasing their debut Us Lights on LP and download in March of that year.
