When: Sat., Oct. 15, 8 p.m. 2016
Los Angeles-based power trio King gained instant acclaim when they first released music back in 2011. After a trickle of singles over the next few years, 2016 saw the arrival of their first full-length, We Are King, a sweet and passionate collection of modern electronic R&B. Producer Anita Bias creates a celestial, glittery canvas, upon which twin sisters Amber and Paris Strother lay their honeyed, reverb-drenched vocals. While strains of classic artists such as Whitney Houston, Klymaxx and Destiny’s Child are ever present, King seem to come from the not-too-distant future. They play on Saturday, October 15, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Nick Hakim opens.
