New Release: Steven A. Clark – ‘Fornication Under The Consent of the King’ + Download


Steven A. Clark yesterday released his poignant post-breakup album, Fornication Under The Consent of the King. Sounding like a blend between Aloe Blacc and The Weeknd with dashes of The Neptunes, Steven digs deep into his heartache, wading in the desolate depths of his sadness and jadedness. Arguably, it may be the mens that do it best when it comes to emo. Remember Kanye’s 808s & Heartbreak? Yeah, ish was depressing.

There are definitely going to be some weeping bros that will find secret relatability here. And we’re gonna let you have that. It’s all a free download and the full stream is available on Consquence of Sound, in case you’re crying so hard that you can’t wait for the download to complete.
