LA-based duo slenderbodies pays tribute to the female role models in their lives in new single “king,” a slick R&B where they capture you with its mesmeric groove. The video is a dark, theatrical fairy tale that taps into the youthful corners of our imagination. Watch below:

“’king’ was written by taking a hard look at the way we create,” slenderbodies explained. “The song focuses on tough topics of self-doubt, need for validation from the world, and a desire to be great when creating. However, we realized that so much of our positive behaviors and gifts regarding creativity were instilled in us by the strong women in our lives. First our mothers, aunts, and grandmothers. Then later on romantic partners and friends. To have someone who says they believe in you and consistently shows it is a wildly powerful thing, and ‘king’ pays homage to that.”

The track is from their upcoming EP SORAYA, which will be out on January 25th. They’ll laso hit the stages of Hangout in May, so go see them if you happen to be in Alabama:
