Us Lights change name to KING WHO with new EP, launch European tour next week 

"Inspired by dream pop and post-punk outfits from the ’80s, such as Echo and the Bunnymen and The Church, mixed with a modern sensibility a la Deerhunter’s more ethereal moments." -- TrebleZine

"Michael Young’s vocals for King Who are breathtaking. As rich as Rufus Wainwright, his tone soars over beautiful, classic synth melodies. This five piece produce an incredibly dynamic tease of clean emotive pop. I defy you to not be blown away." -- The Deli Magazine

Portland, OR quintet King Who (formerly known as Us Lights) share the title track from their forthcoming Body EP today. The intoxicating 4-song EP is packed with beautiful, soaring melodies and powerful musicianship, driven by the silky and emotive vocals of frontman Michael Young. Hear and share "Body" via Soundcloud

King Who recently joined the growing SELF Group label roster, releasing their debut Us Lights on LP and download in March 2016 (full album stream), while announcing the forthcoming Body EP out on May 6th in conjunction with a European tour. Prior to that trek, the band plays a hometown tour kickoff tonight. Please see current dates below. 

King Who uses synth-driven soundscapes, soaring tonal vocals, crisp guitar lines, and a steadfast rhythm section to create a sonically moving and unique brand of dark adventurous pop. 

King Who's Us Lights is available on LP and download via SELF Group. The Body EP will be available digitally on May 6th.
