Today Prima Queen release their new single Invisible Hand – again produced by their friends, The Big Moon. After 18 months away from the stage, Prima Queen made a triumphant live return at last summer’s Green Man Festival, boasting a new collection of songs and an expanded 7-piece band. Recent single Chew My Cheeks drew praise from the likes of DIY, NME and The Line Of Best Fit and a run of dates with Wet Leg soon followed.
Prima Queen will also perform this month with Dream Wife as part of their U.K. tour. New single Invisible Hand finds the transatlantic duo at their most reflective, their most honest and their most contemplative.
On the new single Prima Queen offer the following: “Invisible Hand was written at a time when I was struggling with my mental health. It’s about the experience of blaming yourself for your lows and the exhaustion that comes with trying everything in your power to feel better. Depression is never your fault or your choice – it’s this outside force that isn’t you” Prima Queen are an all-female indie/alternative rock band fronted by songwriting duo and best friends Louise Macphail (Bristol, UK) and Kristin McFadden (Chicago, USA).
Combining vulnerable and nostalgic story telling with light-hearted lyrical imagery, their ethereal yet gritty style draws influences from artists such as Julia Jacklin, Nilüfer Yanya and Lucy Dacus. Prima Queen have recently played sold out headline shows at The Windmill and the Dalston Victoria and have toured with with Billy Nomates among others.
Shortly after releasing their debut single ‘Milk Teeth’, the band joined The Big Moon on a sold-out UK tour, and have since supported the likes of Pip Blom, Brooke Bentham and Black Midi.
