A LOVELESS SUNKEN SUN by Corey King

An expansive 7-song release, Corey King’s A Loveless Sunken Sun is a testament to the power of angst to foster growth.

The record is a product of two transformative and nomadic years that saw him facing the extremities of life in the birth of a son and the death of a loved one while simultaneously touring the world.

King has alchemically transformed those anxieties into an impressionistic set of songs that are by turn kinetic, theatrical, and uplifting. Conceptualized and recorded mostly in solitude in Brooklyn, NY and while on the road, A Loveless Sunken Sun showcases King’s development as a songwriter and producer. More experimental than previous releases,

A Loveless Sunken Sun features synths, drum machines, and programming augmented with live band elements that display the singularity of his musical character. Whereas his 2016 outing Lashes dabbled more with rock and indie influences, A Loveless Sunken Sun manifests the breadth of King’s influences; a picturesque world that is equal parts Electronic, Krautrock and Afrobeat.

There is a feeling of rootless-ness in this record as King processes gratitude, wonder, and sorrow related to the demands of travel, new responsibilities, and loss of his grandmother, Ruthy Taylor, to whom—along with other family members and friends—he dedicates this EP.

This atmospheric and richly impressionistic work offers a glimpse of King’s moody and rewarding experience of life.

Track Name: Fertility Filter
Give so softly now
Disguise your wholesome howl

Fade Out
Fade Out
Fade Out
Fade With Me

Give me away now
Man it’s yours
It’s yours
It’s your way now
Let me just fade out
Let me just fade out
Let me just fade out
It’s your way now


Give so softly now
Disguise your wholesome howl
Track Name: 3 Years
So near, So far
In your loose muffled car
As you roll out your trash talk
Singing blues to settle up
3 years we’ve all lost
Are you done
Will you stop
He’s gone beneath the wave
She’s gone beneath his wave

Feast your electric eye
On the low hanging fruit
News for the chastised, Food for the youth
Are we quite sure
Will it tone your want with lead
Lead on and lead your way
Cheat on your fetus ways

Running man
What will come of today
Running man
What will come of today

Don’t slip off
Don’t slip off
Track Name: Beautiful People
Hence my care for you
Beautiful People
You know you’re that
Hence my care you
I can’t go back
On all of that
Hence my care for you

That the love is ours
That the love is ours
A flap of the wing
And the chaos that may bring
That the love is ours
That the love is ours
A flap of the wing
And the chaos that may bring

Wake up my love
Please don’t be sad
There is no time
Wake up my love
Please don’t be sad
There is no time

That the light goes on
That the light goes off
Flies out of the window
And angel stroke your head

To know you’re that
I can’t go back


I’m running blind
I’m running blind
I’m running blind
I’m running blind
Track Name: Size of the World
Oh the sound was so enticing
Through the fog
And the sea was peppered
From the rain
Taking all that was consumed
In a way that wants home
Free
The trail is opening
The smell up on that day
Is all right
It was far right
Embue confusion
Cause it won’t last
And we will all infuse
Then it’s gone
Then it’s gone
And then it’s gone

If you ever choose to grace the path again
Hold on
To all things you considered a marriage with
Hold on


Then we go round

When we go round


When we finally realize the size of the world
It’s gone
Then the thirst decides to guide you


When we finally realize the size of the world
It’s gone
Then the thirst decides to guide you
Track Name: Seven
All is watching
Beneath we’re loved
Track Name: (You) Issues
Life the signs
Mortalizing you
You calm down
The tales are sorted out
Masterminds
Jury sizing clues
Fueled from the mouths
That relate somehow

Truly unknown ways
Pulled to resonate
Used to council me
Tool to buckle me

It’s you
It’s you
It’s you
It’s you

Rising tides
Lying ties your truth
Near slumbered towns
Your healers thunder now
Seal the fire arms and un-arm all pill forms known to conquer you
Your tears are spoken for

Losing Tunnel Games
Fully Frontal blame
New Sunken Sun
Crudely hung on none

It’s you
It’s you
It’s you
It’s you

It’s you
It’s you
It’s you
It’s you
Track Name: L'age Du Plastique
