Kowalskiy: Who are Queen Jane?Chris: We're four mates hailing from the glorious sunshine state of Cumbernauld that are trying to spread the new-town joy upon anyone who's willing to listen.
Kowalskiy: How would you describe 'your sound'?Chris: People seem to say different things every time we get drunken post-gig feedback, but the most common comparisons seem to be bands like The Maccabees and Bombay Bicycle Club but with a slightly heavier tinge. Generally it's a mix of guitar effects, reverbed vocals, a newly introduced synth and we're working our way up to having a samba-section at our disposal. That's the dream. As it's recently been summery in Cumbernauld of all places, a lot of people were listening to the EP and commenting on its summery connotations especially on the first track, 'Those Summers'.
Kowalskiy: PLUG AWAY!!!Chris: People can listen to the new EP, Denver, on Bandcamp (and even download it for £2 if you're feeling so generous), and keep up to date with our inane cat-related banter on Facebook. Also, we're playing a few gigs with some lovely people soon on April 7th at The 13th Note as part of a Flowers In The Dustbin showcase and another on the 17th of June at The Captain's Rest hosted by the beautiful Scottish Fiction.
Kowalskiy: What else can we expect from Queen Jane in the future?Chris: Once the overwhelming response from the new EP dies down a bit then we're hoping to get back into the studio later this year to record a mini-album. We're hoping that it'll be more polished re-recordings of old songs with a few new ones thrown in for good measure. Until then we're taking it as it comes, organising our own gigs with bands we love.
It might take a while for that overwhelming response to die down. Before it does, have a listen to the EP above and if it tickles your fancy, get your pennies out!
