Premier: ‘New Balloons’ by King Who

We’re pleased to bring you an exclusive premier of the new King Who track ‘New Balloons’ from their forthcoming album Giant Eye. The album will be available on 180-gram LP and download on August 17th, 2018 via SELF Group. Pre-order here. Listen below:


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 (full album stream).
