King Woman to release limted edition cassette and download ‘Dove’ on The Native Sound

By on June 15, 2014

King Woman

Kristina Esfandiari is King Woman. Following her debut EP as Miserable, Kristina returns to her original solo-moniker for the Dove / Fond Affections cassingle/ digital single – her second release as King Woman.

Building on the haunting folk of 2013’s Degrida / Sick Bed single, “Dove” is a slow-burning, muscular, and above all, monstrous song. Clocking in at over 15 minutes, it is by far the most emotive of Kristina’s recent compositions. “Fond Affections”, a cover of the classic Rema-Rema song follows, and although it is slightly less expansive in it’s seven minute run-time, it is equally powerful and poignant. Kristina’s take on the 4AD standard made popular by This Mortal Coil is nothing short of gorgeous – a true testament to her development as a songwriter, and a hint of what’s to come from this project’s future releases.

Dove / Fond Affections will be available on June 17th as both a digital download and on a limited edition cassingle via The Native Sound. The cassette tape will be pressed on three variants (White, Clear, and Purple), each limited to just 50 copies, fit with a three-panel J-card. The cassingle will also include a bonus track – B. Wild’s remix of “Dove”.

Impose Magazine is premiering the song “Dove” today which can be streamed here.
