“Kings” is the first song off of Creation, the new album due out on June 2. (Also, the Believe In Me EP was released on March 31, so that’s a good thing too!)
The song takes the duo’s throwback folk-rock sound and elevates it to hypnotic new heights, most comparable to HAIM — so basically, Fleetwood Mac with a bit of modern gloss. “If we want to, we could do what kings do/I could feel the earth move when you speak,” the girls declare atop an instantly catchy hook of a chorus, surrounded by whimsical strings and pounding drums.
It’s a dreamy little number, and a solid way to kick off the campaign. Kudos, Allison and Catherine — this sound suits you well.
