Kristina Esfandiari is King Woman. Following her debut EP as Miserable, Kristina returns to her original solo-moniker for the Dove / Fond Affections cassingle/ digital single – her second release as King Woman. The 2 song single is available via The Native Sound, or Bandcamp, iTunes or Amazon. The cassette tape is pressed on three variants (White, Clear, and Purple), each limited to just 50 copies, fit with a three-panel J-card. The cassingle also includes a bonus track – B. Wild’s remix of “Dove.” Stream Dove / Fond Affections in its entirety on Nothing But Hope and Passion.
“Fond Affections,” a cover of the classic Rema-Rema song, is a powerful and poignant take on the 4AD standard made popular by This Mortal Coil.
“Dove” builds on the haunting folk of King Woman’s 2013 Degrida / Sick Bed single. “A slow-burning, muscular, and above all, monstrous song clocking in at over 15 minutes. It is by far the most emotive of Kristina’s recent compositions.
