King Princess: The Bend

Appearing on NME and Bose’s C-Series mixtape (slated to land mid-March), “The Bend” by King Princess is a tender, gentle ballad. The artist (aka Mikaela Strauss) lends soft and at times raspy vocals to the track, which—combined with the song’s guitar-led and spacious production—is immediately affecting. Of the track, Strauss says, “It’s about feeling like every time you get to the mountain, there’s another mountain, whether that’s your mental health or your love life or your work life.”
