slenderbodies is the California-based duo sonically rooted in the indie genre. Composed of Max Vehuni and Benji Cormack, the two sing, write, produce, and mix their own tracks; exploring the inner workings of their creative process. Touring worldwide with Milky Chance, Muramasa, Passion Pit, and PVRIS, Cormack and Vehuni have racked up over 20 million streams on their debut single, “anemone.” Today, the Avant Garden-signed pair drop their new single, “king,” as they announce the release of their EP, SORAYA, for January 25th. With smoky hushed vocals, “king” radiates an infectious groove- prompting a replay continuum.

“‘king’ was written by taking a hard look at the way we create,” slenderbodies explain. “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.”
