KING WHO (formerly Us Lights from Portland, Oregon, USA)

„Layers of textures from moody synths, steadfast rhythm section, stadium-worthy vocals, and an intricate sampling create an atmospheric pop that is intangible yet tantalizing.“ — Autumn Andel, Prefix Magazine

„Us Lights, is a newish dark-pop band from members of the Brothers Young and Hurtbird (among lots of other Portland bands). „Sometimes Smile“ is an eerie but propulsive number that conjures an intricate spiral pattern like a spider’s web. There’s tons of atmosphere here, with muscly bass and cannon-like drums providing a sturdy foundation to the more ethereal, water-drop elements.“ — NED LANNAMANN, Portland Mercury

„Michael Young’s vocals for Us Lights 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.“ – Jennie Chapman, The Deli Magazine
