Returning for one final Minneapolis show in 2016, the locally rooted dream-pop/R&B trio KING are three weeks on the heels of their Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album alongside the likes of Beyoncé’s Lemonade and Rihanna’s Anti-. The nomination is for We Are KING, the Los Angeles-based group’s long-awaited debut album and follow-up to 2011’s The Story EP. That EP introduced Amber Strother and Anita Bias as extraordinary singers, and Paris Strother (who, like her twin sister, is originally from the Twin Cities) as an ambitious producer. Five years later, with the arrival of We Are KING, they lived up to the hype and then some. Besides the Grammy nom, it was also named Spin’s No. 21 best album of 2016, a deserved honor: The LP is shimmeringly gorgeous, masterfully crafted, and makes zero compromises to boost its odds of landing a hit single (though the infectious “The Greatest” turned out to be its most popular song). With Tiny Deaths, K.Raydio, and DJ Willie Shu.
