Liverpool duo King Hannah are gearing up to release the follow-up to last year's excellent debut album, Tell Me Your Mind and I'll Tell You Mine. While a new album hasn't been officially announced yet, they have just shared an excellent new single, "A Well-Made Woman." Hannah Merrick and Craig Whittle are skillful builders of mood, and here craft layers of smoky atmosphere with simmering guitar lines, clattering drums and Hannah's low-key, smouldering vocals. "A Well-Made Woman" slinks along familiar path -- tread by PJ Harvey, Mazzy Star, Portishead, and others -- but King Hannah bring their own flair and command of dynamics. It's a slow-burn stunner.
If you need more fire/heat metaphors, the video for "A Well-Made Woman," directed by Whittle, delivers. Watch that below.
