Track Of The Day :: Queen Of Jeans - Dance (Get Off Your Ass)
Words: Ellie Ward
Philadelphia girls Miriam, Matheson and Nina are Queen of Jeans, a female-fronted group with 60s girl group-influenced vocal harmonies and textured melodic pop instrumentation - and a cracker of a debut single in 'Dance (Get Off Your Ass)'.
The five-minute track is filled with lush harmonisation - think, a Courtney Barnett variant, multiplied, or a pop Warpaint - catchy hooks, and tumbling drums over a splendidly unhurried guitar.
Queen of Jeans play Bourbon & Branch in Philadelphia tonight (October 8).
Queen Of Jeans are: Miriam Devora - vocals, rhythm guitar, Matheson Glass - lead guitar, backing vocals, Nina Scotto - bass, backing vocals.
