From Def Presse:
An expansive 7-song release, Corey King‚Äôs A Loveless Sunken Sun is a testament to the power of angst to foster growth…
‘A Loveless Sunken Sun’ features synths, drum machines, and programming augmented with live band elements that display the singularity of his musical character. Whereas his 2016 outing Lashes dabbled more with rock and indie influences, ‘A Loveless Sunken Sun’ manifests the breadth of King‚Äôs influences; a picturesque world that is equal parts Electronic, Krautrock and Afrobeat.¬†
There is a feeling of rootless-ness in this record as King processes gratitude, wonder, and sorrow related to the demands of travel, new responsibilities, and loss of his grandmother, Ruthy Taylor, to whom‚ÄĒalong with other family members and friends‚ÄĒhe dedicates this EP. This atmospheric and richly impressionistic work offers a glimpse of King‚Äôs moody and rewarding experience of life.¬†
