Austin duo SIGNY are thrilled to share their sophomore single, “Kings”. The irresistibly quirky track premiered Thursday exclusively via Magnetic Magazine. – Hear “Kings” –
SIGNY have been earning early praise for their invigorating and engaging sound, with BlackBook hailing their debut single, “Human”, as a “lavishly visceral celebration” and Substream lauding the duo as “refreshingly genuine, [breathing] new life into an already wildly saturated genre.” “Kings” slots perfectly into this tradition as a feisty and empowered slice of synthed-up pop that backs the ladies’ declaration: “Do no harm and take no shit, we are kings, so deal with it”. If the track sounds familiar, you may have heard it in season one of Freeform’s The Bold Type.
We wrote Kings to challenge deeply rooted ideas about women and power. When we say “Devil on my lips, if you wanna kiss, I’ll give you a mouthful,” we are saying that we are not objects. We’re human beings with agency, and won’t be silent. When we say “Fuck the lore, I’m a heroine,” we are saying the idea that women are less powerful than men is false. “Do no harm, and take no shit” is our credo. It happens to be a hard one to live up to, but we do our best.
Although we wrote Kings from our perspective as women, it’s a call to action for anyone who believes that we have inherent value and worth.
We are kings. Gender does not define us. The script has been flipped. Join us?
