Ethereal pop duo, Auguste are set to release their new single, Kingdom on April 15, a synth-soaked call-to-arms for those defending themselves against personal space invaders. The talented gals have also released a stunning video to accompany the single which features contemporary dancers Jess Statton and Aiden Kane Munn in a sharp studio landscape turned battleground against doubt.
Off the back of the success of their last single Slow Motion, which has almost 200,000 streams on Soundcloud, Kingdom is a mature offering from the duo. Produced by renowned Australian musician and producer Andy Bull, Kingdom comes as a welcome anthem about taking control of your own personal space. Written by the step-sisters and self-confessed BFFs, Skye Lockwood and Beth Keough, the single is reminiscent of London Grammar, Bat for Lashes and Ellie Goulding, with effortless vocal harmonies, climactic synth swells, dramatic silences and thought-provoking lyrics. Of the release, vocalist and guitarist Lockwood says, “Kingdom is about personal space and the challenges we face when others are invading that space in a negative way…it’s really a bit of an ‘eff you’ to anyone who has ever tried to control you or tell you what to do.”
