The King’s Parade have today released their brand new single "Woman". The song sees the highly acclaimed London quartet addressing the issues of gender imbalance which are witnessed on a daily basis in society.
"Woman" premiered with Mahogany who said, "The sentiment is worthy of praise. So too is the track. With a belting chorus and intelligent lyrics, Woman is a rich slice of alt-soul ."
Frontman Olly Corpe explains, "I see it every day and it never changes. It seems that it's ingrained and that there’s just this biological barrier that we men can't or won't break down. The idea behind the chorus was to try and make the phrase "Like a Woman" celebratory and empowering, rather than derogatory or belittling. It conveys the strength and determination/force of a woman breaking through.
The opening verse depicts a magazine showing a model portraying how she is 'meant to look', something we're all familiar with. The second verse focuses on the biological inequality, which all women have to face; time seems to be against them on almost every level. All of us in the band thought that it was important to voice how we feel and express our respect and admiration for women everywhere. Hopefully it will ring true for everybody who hears it."
