Combining the styles of the Queens Of The Stone Age, Royal Blood, Muse, Rage Against The Machine and Biffy Clyro SHADOWQUEEN are a dynamic melodic hard rock group that are not to be disregarded. Particularly as they are such a diverse band it is very difficult to pigeon hole them into one specific genre. The versatile band have supported the much loved New Zealand band Shihad and Australian bands such as Electric Mary, The Butterfly Effect and Bellusira
Listen to the Track Here:
SHADOWQUEEN consists of Robbi Zana on lead vocals, bass guitar and piano, Si Hopman on guitar and backing vocals and last but certainly not least Alex Deegan on drums. I particularly like how the band is female fronted, it gives the band a certain edge that many male rock bands simply do not have, and Robbi’s vocals are well controlled and very easy to listen to which helps. Their track has an infectious riff and the lyrics are a true ear worm and will be sure to stick in your head long after you hear them.
Following hot on the heels of their first album, the band is set to release their sophomore album next year. The have already had much success which has given them the opportunity to work with well known producers who have worked with people such as Biffy Clyro. This musical experience combined with the bands unique style suggests that their upcoming album will certainly be something to look out for.
The accompanying video for the track sees the band performing in a darkened corridor which really sets the scene for the rest of the video. The video and the lyrics really make you think, the progression of the video allowed me to come to the conclusion that the only person who holds you back in life is yourself and that the only person I am waiting on is me.
All in all, this is a catchy tune and one I would recommend that you add to your playlists. I also suggest that you keep up to date with the band’s social media so you can keep an eye open for what they will come out with next… I have no doubts it will be great.
