Our #WCW this week is an artist we have been loving lately, she goes by the name King IV and she’s on her come up. Emerging on the scene just last year, it’s been a pretty steep climb so far. She’s performed at Melbourne Music Week, had play on triple j and even Tel Aviv’s biggest station, 100 FM.
A Melbourne local, she’s part of a healthy crop of young musicians daring to push boundaries. Every release so far has been sound-defining and unprecedented. King IV is here to do it her own way and so far, it’s done her great justice.
‘We Can Get It’ was the first track to really snatch our attention. Released with a remix EP featuring edits from Donatachi and Ok Sure to name a few, it’s pure fire. Now she’s levelled up again with the release of her new single ‘Bump’.
Her most menacing yet, King IV sinks her teeth into you hard on this one. It’s received big praise on her triple j Unearthed page with reviews from Linda Marigliano, Bridget Hustwaite and Claire Mooney. All signs are pointing to the top.
It’s incredibly inspiring to see emerging artists making their mark in a big way and King IV is doing just that. She is bound to influence others to come and that is really exciting. The future of Australian music is in the capable hands of artists like her and it’s looking very bright!
