REVIEW: Queen Frequency & The Twats - 'Observations Of A Lonely Planet, Part I'
Rising psych-rock band Queen Frequency & The Twats have returned with their highly-anticipated new album ‘Observations Of A Lonely Planet, Part I’.
Boasting 15 tracks, ‘Observations Of A Lonely Planet, Part I’ is jam-packed with mind bending basslines and warm rock ‘n’ rolls drums. Cut up with social activism style announcements, ‘Observations Of A Lonely Planet, Part I’ makes a statement from the very start. While dripping with nostalgia Queen Frequency & The Twats have managed to make a modern stamp on their 60s-inspired sound with the captivating and attitude laden vocals.
The band’s Meghan McDonald speaking on ‘Observations Of A Lonely Planet, Part I’:
“‘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.”
As a multi-genre band Queen Frequency & The Twats have the creative freedom to take their music wherever they wish, often incorporating elements of feminism and science fiction into their music. As their soundscape is constantly evolving it allows for the band to shape-shift their way through genre boundaries effortlessly blending together aspects of punk through to trance, and from psychedelica to a classic pop ballad. Constantly keeping their growing number of fans on their toes for what to expect with their next release, and ‘Observations Of A Lonely Planet, Part I’ is no different.
