Following up their debut single 'Falling Into Skies' which we loved a few months ago, Philadelphia/DC five-piece Queue now bring the second single from their upcoming first EP, 'Frames', released on June 28.
'More', which is out this week, takes a somewhat softer line to its predecessor: a four-minute atmospheric track that straddles indie / dreampop / folk, with Olivia Price's evocatively rich vocal presiding over a lush roll of guitars and easy beats.
“‘More’ is about an uphill battle with anxiety and mental exhaustion that spawned from an identity crisis,” Price says of the song's lyrics. “It outlines the internal struggle of desiring something better and the inherent conflict that can occur when trying to make that desire a reality. The heavy lyrics are juxtaposed with playful and rhythmic melodies to sonically emphasize the fact that no one is ever as s/he seems on the surface.”
