Hailing from Denmark, KING uses some of the more existential elements of the northern psyche to good effect on her new single Only U. Superficially a pop track, but there’s layers of looming darkness lyrically and musically, due in part down to her collaboration with the production duo Peter Yushichi St James and Christian Nilsson. With its pulsating beats, sharp synths and secretly vulnerable vocals, Only U is solid gold Scandi-pop with an American sheen.
Speaking about Only U, Kings says; “Only U is the hardest track I’ve ever recorded. Christian and James made me do everything over and over again because they wanted it to be perfect. I’m really proud of this track: the sound, my tone and the lyrics. If a song could be perfect this is the one.”
King has also released a Berlin-set video to accompany the track, which you can check out over on her YouTube channel. Only U is out now via Warner Music Denmark, streaming on Spotify and can be bought via all major digital stores.
