A version of James K was born. Comprised of bones, reactive metals and a larynx with freckled eyes that catalyzes that mix. When she chews gum, it’s not clear which one of her personas does it. Since their first release in 2013, describing them separately is grunt work as they switch places, cosplay each other and would most likely lull you into a lonesome dream. Together, they know how to produce, sound, film and edit, performing and DJing in clubs and theaters, along composers and children alike. They star on a French TV, during commissioned exhibitions and on runways, too. They release on Incienso, AD 93, PAN, and continue to operate their label, She Rocks!, started in 2015 to release unestablished female-identifying artists. K provides shows for NTS, works with Yves Tumor, 3XL, Drew McDowall, and slayed her band SETH twice.

Take a sip of water before your memory error blinks. Dial to K. Listen to the disfragmented territory and the cast of it she’s making. It might not be what you will have thought tomorrow.
