Equal parts driving and delicate, the ever cool Indian Queens have shared their new track ‘Pretty Little Thing’ and it’s as attractive to the ears as its namesake suggests. Released via Cool Thing Records today (June 15th), the single is an infectious blur of hypnotic vocals and shoe gaze guitar sounds.
“’Pretty Little’ Thing started as a childhood memory,” explains guitarist and vocalist Jennifer O’Neill. “My Nan and Grandads’s garden always sounded of birds and far off planes travelling to nicer places. It was a warm feeling and I didn’t want to be anywhere else.” These nostalgic undertones makes ‘Pretty Little Thing’ chime with warmth and understated joy. Jennifer also designed the artwork for the single (pictured below), making this release particularly personal.
Indian Queens are set to play at Southbank’s Meltdown Festival – curated by the inimitable Robert Smith – tonight (15th June) and we can’t wait to seem them live again. Listen to ‘Pretty Little Thing’ below, and follow Indian Queens on Facebook for more updates.
