Up in '13: KING with In The Meantime
Earlier this month, I posted on a new male solo artist named King. This week I am in deep love with In The Meantime, the debut single from a female trio called KING. Typically, it's the UK that's picked up on this group, perhaps after the wave of smoother female artists creating proper, chilled grooves (see Jessie Ware, among others).
The group, from LA, are twin sisters Paris and Amber Strother, with Anita Bias. Their music is totally self made - no million dollar producers on board. Still, In The Meantime's smooth chorus reminds me of the heyday of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (see Janet Jackson, Cherelle and a million others). Note that they've caught the ear of Prince recently. Then me. And now you!
In The Meantime is on iTunes worldwide
