Indian Queens Announce God Is A Woman

  • Published in News

London three-piece Indian Queens have announced the release of their debut album, God Is A Woman, released on April 3 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 13) 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.

Asylums Release 'Catalogue Kids’

  • Published in News

Thundering full-throttle from supporting Iggy Pop, sell-out European shows, agitpop protesters Asylums are not letting up for a second.  The Southend based alt-rock band return with new single ‘Catalogue Kids’; a call to arms anthem for a disenfranchised youth and adults alike.

Frontman Luke Branch says "‘Catalogue Kids’ is the thematic microcosm to our new album. I became a father during the writing and recording of the album, as I contemplated this awesome new responsibility the country seemed to be in a state of complete chaos and disorder both politically and socially. It left me with some big existential questions both in my interior world and the wider exterior world, you can feel some of that in ‘Catalogue Kids’".

Asylums have had an incredible 12 months. As recent recipients of the prestigious and hard-to-score PRS Momentum Fund, their next leap forward seems gilded, greased, and good-to-go. In the privacy of a world-class studio with legendary recording engineer and sound alchemist Steve Albini (Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Pixies), Asylums are currently putting the finishing touches to their forthcoming third album and are uniquely primed for 2020.
