If you’re looking for the soundtrack to a “late dark night in London”, then Hackney trio Indian Queens‘ latest single ‘I Get No Rest’ is the perfect choice. Written during the midst of a massive political shift (Brexit, the general election) and in the wake of the tragic Grenfell Tower fire, it’s the band’s response to the inescapable feeling that – as vocalist & guitarist Jennifer O’Neill put its – “rich ‘important’ people were taking the piss out most of our lives.”
You’ll be hooked on Jennifer’s clear, strong vocals which dominate the track, and chanting the standout lyric “Free, as long as you obey” in unison with her. The song’s steady percussion and moody bass create a seductively jaded atmosphere; proving Indian Queens have the potential to produce original, ominous, and meaningful sounds.
The band will be playing a headline show at St Pancras Old Church on November 29th (event details here) so make sure you grab a ticket and head down to see them live. Listen to ‘I Get No Rest’ below, and follow Indian Queens on Facebook for more updates.
‘I Get No Rest’ (released via Cool Thing Records) is available to stream & download now.
