Danish-Cuban artist KING is back with a new single that showcases Scandinavian music at it’s finest; this is a vital and urgent song that hits hard and leaves a lasting impression.
“On ‘Angel Dust’ I felt like doing something very sensual – as opposed to sexual – in my artistic visual identity. So I just pushed it as one long foreplay with beautiful movements. We could be naked doing this stuff and it would still be sensual and not sexual: that was the mission with this visual.”
Danish Cuban newcomer KING exploded on to the blogosphere with debut ‘Promise’ back in August last year – and the track is nearing a million plays on YouTube already.
Her releases so far give out an intense, deep sound that bounces from euphoric pop through to dark beats. Curious to learn more about this talent, I sent through a few quickfire questions…
What influences you to write songs?
I feel like I make up small fairytales about how I want things to be – or how I want things to end up.
Who are you currently loving listening to?
I listen to Tory Lanez. He is currently by biggest idol. I also really like Big Sean’s music.
Coming from Scandinavia, why do you think so much good pop is born from the region?
I think people in Scandinavia are really good at making music and I make most of my music in Stockholm – I’m in Stockholm right now. I love listening to Tove Lo and Zara Larsson. And I really like everything Max Martin did.
Who would your dream collaboration be with?
Justin Bieber, Tove Lo, Tory Lanez, Big Sean.
What do you have planned for the year ahead?
I’ll be spending a lot of time in Stockholm and Los Angeles writing and recording my music. And later this year I’m releasing my debut album and I’m really looking forward to show people who KING is.
