about

San Francisco's KING WOMAN unveil their debut full-length Created In The Image of Suffering, a profoundly crafted opus of brooding, ethereal doom-rock. Led by the hypnotic and breathy vocal dramatics of Kristina Esfandiari, KING WOMAN harness the elastic textures and temporality of drone and metallic shoegaze alongside the transcendental, melancholic power of doom. Recorded with engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Wreck & Reference, Oathbreaker) at the Atomic Garden, Created In The Image of Suffering's seven compositions evoke rich, gloomy imagery with crumbling washes of blurred, billowing distortion densely layered atop hazy, psychedelic atmospheres that call to mind a surrealistic Black Sabbath fronted by Mazzy Star. Complete with deeply personal, introspective lyrics that serve as catharsis for years of religious and mental torment, KING WOMAN truly suffer to create their art.

Track Name: Utopia
I among the sleeping crown
Taking hand
You draw it out
There's a hunger in my being
Flooded by an emerald high

You are unearthed
I discover
Washing over
Holy other

Oh it's surreal it's surreal it's surreal
yeah
Oh it's surreal it's surreal it's surreal
yeah

Eye among the sleeping crown
Taking hand you draw it out
There's a hunger in my being
Flooded by an emerald high

You are unearthed
I discover
Washing over
Holy other

And is this my reality?
And is this really happening?
And is this my reality?
And is this really happening?
Track Name: Deny
I know the spirit
Etiquette
I'd wash your feet with
My dirty hair

Jesus I love you
With all my heart
But I feel like an angel
I'm lacking the star
I'm lacking the spirit
I'm losing the heart
I'm lacking the spirit

I pray my mother
Won't you ever find a cure?
Throw back odd pill
Find euphoria I once knew
Am I so dulled down?
Am I a whitewashed wall?
So dirty on
The inside?

I know the spirit
Etiquette
I'd wash your feet with
My dirty hair
And you know I love you
With all my heart
But I feel like an angel
I'm lacking the star

I pray my mother
Won't you ever find a cure?
Throw back odd pill
Find euphoria I once knew
Am I so dulled down?
Am I a whitewashed wall?
So dirty on
The inside?
I pray my mother won't you ever find a cure?
Throw back odd pill find euphoria I once
Am I so dulled down?
Am I a whitewashed wall?
So dirty on
The inside?
