Must Watch: King Woman’s Video for “Morning Star”


“Morning Star,” the new single from King Woman — led by songwriter and vocalist Kris Esfandiari — is an absolutely mesmerizing composition. I’ve listened to it three times through already and I’ve yet to fully ingest the complete scope of the composition, a daring and dynamic piece that runs the gamut from brooding to scathing with no drop in intensity throughout, all outside the friendly confines of standard song structure.

The video for the track is just as captivating, a dizzying affair — literally — that, unless there’s some very sneaky editing room magic, consists of one single take. It’s the perfect visual accompaniment to the track, and just when you think you’ve got the gist of it, Esfandiari throws in a wrenching and visceral surprise.

Give it a watch below. Celestial Blues comes out on July 30 via Relapse; pre-order here.
