London 3-piece Indian Queens have announced a UK tour in May. The full list of dates is below.
Last week the band released a video for their brand new single ‘Bubblewrap’. The track is taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘God Is A Woman’, due to be released on Cool Thing Records later this year.
‘Bubblewrap’ is a pounding, hypnotic track, dreamlike harmonies harking back to early Portishead and Massive Attack, while lyrically it centres on the ongoing climate crisis – singer Jennifer O’Neill lamenting – “a million years from now, fighting for air to breathe”.
Watch the video for ‘Bubblewrap’, directed by Andrew Delaney here.
Consisting of sisters Jennifer (guitar/vocals) and Katherine (bass) O’Neill, along with lifelong friend Matthew Dudan-Bick on Drums, Indian Queens were born and raised in Hackney Wick and have been making music together since their school days.
Last year the band were personally invited by Robert Smith to play the prestigious Meltdown festival alongside My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails and The Libertines.
