Crockpot Pop. It’s not a term you’ll be instantly familiar with, but it is a perfect descriptor of Philadelphia quartet Queen of Jeans.
Prior to releasing their self-titled debut EP in early 2016, Miriam Devora, Matheson Glass, and Nina Scotto had all played in other bands, but as had been all too common a practice a few years ago, were often accessorized and handed a tambourine instead of a guitar. The three visualized a new project on their own terms, and finalized their lineup with drummer Patrick Wall. Queen of Jeans instantly took root, earning praise for their debut that showcased their glowing eye for detail and garnered attention from the likes of Wild Honey Pie, who called it a “welcoming beacon in the night” and Clash magazine, who labeled it a “riot of attitude and colour.”
Overwhelmed by the positive response, they vigorously developed their live set in their hometown and touring, and playing festivals such as WXPN's XPoNential, Made in America and SXSW, all of which was rounded off by a full US tour alongside Balance & Composure and From Indian Lakes - no small feat for a band with just one EP to its name.
Honing their sound through those experiences, the band crafted their debut LP with palpable care and consideration in the time since their first release. The result is Dig Yourself, out March 30th via their new home of Topshelf Records. It is a marked leap forward, a decadent and decisive nine-track record that immediately feels like a coming-of-age.
