All songs are from the band’s self-titled EP, available on Super Fan 99 (UK) and Third Uncle Records.
Queen of Jeans is the grit-pop project of singer/songwriter Miriam Devora, guitarist Matheson Glass, bassist Nina Scotto and drummer Patrick Wall. The music, lush in its retro guitar and ethereal three part harmony composition, is clever while introspective, sparking comparison to the likes of Roy Orbison, Cocteau Twins, and contemporaries Warpaint and Angel Olsen.
The Philadelphia-based band released their debut self-titled EP in January 2016 and has already garnered noteworthy recognition opening for national bands while selling out their own headlining shows in Philadelphia. They took part in WXPN’s XPoNential Music Festival, playing alongside artists such as Brandi Carlisle, Kurt Vile, Alabama Shakes and Ryan Adams, and have gained both national and international radio play, including the BBC in London.
“They got their name by putting a feminist spin on an uber-masculine piece of South Philly signage. They write pointed fuzz-rock songs punctuated by hooky melodies and retro-pop harmonies, washed in a dreamy soundscape. They’re Queen of Jeans, and they’re a band that needs to be on your radar.”
WXPN’s The Key
“With vocal harmonies that sound like a long-lost 1960’s girl group that everyone would have danced to, the combo of Miriam Devora, Matheson Glass, Nina Scotto, and Patrick Wall is a kaleidoscope of jangle and denim. With their self-titled EP as the setting for their live fare, they should be your next band crush.”
