"Epic, intense and superb" -The Guardian
Petite Noir and Kingdom today share new double single Coeurworld. CoeurWorld sees two worlds collide: the signature sound you'd expect from Kingdom alongside Petite Noir's distinct vocals traversing into more alternative territory, the Noirwave world.
On the single Petite Noir offers the following: "I have been a huge fan of Kingdom since the early Fade To Mind days and I was very excited for this collaboration as it sparked new ideas for the future. CoeurWorld is an EP dedicated to sending love out to the world during these trying times."
