If you’re the kind of music lover that covets sounds inspired by 60s-inspired psychedelica, then you’re going to love Queen Frequency & The Twats, a multi-genre rock band that incorporates feminism and science fiction themes into its music.
The band’s newest album, Observations of a Lonely Planet, Pt. 1, projects a far away future in which humanity has abandoned planet earth due to their own failures to stop climate change, war and any other number of self-induced threats to life.
Speaking about the new record, the band’s Meghan McDonald said, “‘Observations of a Lonely Planet’ is a concept album in the most basic sense. It is formatted in a similar way to Kanye West’s ‘College Dropout’ and Lauryn Hill’s ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’, employing a classroom-based storyline. Only with ‘Observations’, the classroom is based in the future, and centres on the demise of Earth. This album has two themes: On the one hand, with the classroom storyline, it simplifies world problems that are going on currently in a way that a child could understand. While on a more personal level, the album dissects many existing facets of femininity.”
The album unfolds chapter-upon-chapter like a storybook being read aloud by your favourite teacher, all the while soundtrack by an expansive and hallucinatory psych-rock blend.
