London 3-piece Indian Queens have announced the release of their debut album ‘God Is A Woman’, released on April 3rd via Cool Thing Records. As described by lead singer Jennifer O’Neill, ‘God Is A Woman’ is “a late night record, an album to put on during a dark drive, to play at the end of the party when it all slows down…”
Forthcoming single ‘Shoot For Sexy’ (released March 13th) is a prime example. Probably the most upbeat track on the album – it’s a kaleidoscopic affair with suggestive lyrics and a rolling bass groove sure to move even the firmest of hips.
The first single to be taken from the record was last month’s ‘Bubblewrap’ – a pounding, hypnotic track with dreamlike harmonies harking back to early Portishead and Massive Attack. Other tracks of note include ‘Pretty Little Thing’, with its Americana feel, and the album’s anthemic title track ‘God Is A Woman’.
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.
