King Isis Uses ‘Dissonance’ To Look At Their Whole Self

Tune in now...

King Isis returns with new single ‘Dissonance’.

The songwriter is moving to higher and higher heights, fresh from the support given to her breakout EP ‘Shed’ earlier this year.

Continually creative, King Isis has just moved to release something new. Coming of age in the Bay Area, there’s a flavour of the region’s sense of independence in their work – refreshing, colourful, and free.

Out now, new single ‘Dissonance’ is about embracing your full self, seeing your life in its totality. The lyrics are subtle but the music has an endearing brashness, a grunge-pop palette produced by frequent collaborator and childhood friend, Jaden Wiggins

King Isis comments…

’Dissonance’ is a song about embracing the differences that make us whole, that make us who we are. It leans into the ‘other,’ a celebration of the pieces of selves that we may feel adverse to or are socially rejected.

I’ve spent a lot of time trying to conform and present in ways that were outside of myself to appease the perceptions of others. So this is a song about being happy and full in my own, however that shows up. It’s embracing the tension and uneasiness in self and communal discovery, just loving yourself fully and those around you who embrace that difference.

Tune in now.
