ELEVATED TRANSMISSIONS PODCAST 013 – Kristina Esfandiari / King Woman


This week’s episode of The Elevated Transmissions Podcast is with Kristina Esfandiari, the front woman of King Woman from San Francisco, California. Recently relocated to New York, King Woman make heavy yet ethereal, psychedelic doom metal. I met Kristina a few years back via the Internet when she was just starting the King Woman project (little did we know we were basically neighbors in SF at the time). Having seen it evolve over the years from a solo act to a fully formed band, it’s really amazing how far they’ve come. Their new record ‘Created in the Image of Suffering’ is out now on Relapse records and is incredible, so show them some love!
