Weekend Warrior, March 30 - April 1

Weekend Warrior, March 30 - April 1

Today, via Topshelf Records, Dig Yourself, the new album from Queen of Jeans, surfaces, and tomorrow evening, Underground Arts will be hosting their record release show, with support from Katie Ellen and Harmony Woods. The album is one that’s layered waves of sound continuously wash over you, gaining personal traction with each additional spin. Much like the ocean’s edge, where the band’s melodic, daydreaming, surf-pop haze transports one’s headspace to, these songs retain a personal warmth and refreshing aesthetic. Exploring the full arc, ranging from the beauty of beginning love, through the dangers of losing your own identity in the process, to the breaking up point, there’s an elegant, charming openness of emotion. An infectious, alluring backbeat and the heart of vocal harmonies breathe life into one’s lungs. Whether it’s marking the highs or lows, there’s a passionate, musical perspective that sticks throughout. In the ongoing evolution and evaluation of yourself, there’s never a bad time to dig in. – Michael Colavita
