Bio

King IV (pronounced King Ivy) crafts dark electronica, writing music with a progressive fusion of modern sounds, merging influences from underground EDM and Alt-RnB scenes.
Drawing inspiration from Melbourne's rich electronic scene, she harnesses an attacking and
submerging sound of deep bottom-ends and heavy-hitting beats.

King IV’s first single ‘No. One’ was well received, gaining airplay on triple j’s Good Nights after being premiered with tastemakers Purple Sneakers. Her second single, ‘Like I'm Back’ set a new tone for King IV's usual bold demeanor, showing a more intricate yet dominant approach to her sound, also securing airplay on triple j breakfast, community radio PBS and FBi as well as praise from favourable blogs such as Pilerats and The Ladies Network.

King IV recently re-emerged to reveal a new extremity to her sound, ‘We Can Get It’ a force entirely of it’s own that included vast radio coverage from Triple J, SYN and FBi radio. Shortly following the release, King IV debuted her highly anticipated live show at the Melbourne leg of this years Listen Out festival, where she premiered her 4th single ‘Bump'. A sonically-defining track for King IV, ‘Bump’ showcases her most powerful performance to date.

That production slicing through my ears like a surgical lazer - delivered with precision and medically sharp. What an imperious vocal to tower over it all.

Girl, you are a force to be reckoned with! Very exciting to watch you progress with each release and this is a straight up heavy hitter.
