Baby Queens

Baby Queens

Whistlers Green

From BBC Radio 1 ‘Artist Of The Week’ to Guardian’s ‘Band Of The Day’, these 5 girls from Cardiff (two sisters, two cousins and their adopted sister, each equal parts songwriter, musician and music lover) have certainly been making themselves known recently. Their new album produced by Super Furry Animal’s Cian Ciaran, has drawn comparisons to a variety of iconic artists and bands, including TLC, Massive Attack, En Vogue and SWV.

Estelle and Cara used to be in punk band, Monique and Ruth are into their hip hop whilst Vanity brings the RnB to the group, the sickly sweet overtures one might expect from an all-girl band are ditched in favour of beats that force the melodic content to the fore, with the principles of classic soul and R’n’B song writing catching up with the present day sounds of British street genres. Lavishly layered vocals are wrapped up in slick production that marks out Baby Queens’ intentions to push boundaries and reintroduce what a vocal group with melody and beats in their hearts is all about.
