@8PM; Live! From The Red Room: Vita and the Woolf and Queen of Jeans
Inspired by the love relationship between novelists Vita
Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf, Philadelphia’s Vita and the Woolf released
their long-awaited new album, Tunnels on June 16 on Believe Global Label Services. The project was
mixed by James Chapman (of Maps ) and has received widespread critical acclaim,
among others finding a fan in M83 who wrote about them for USA Today as well as being dubbed a “Band You
Need To See” by Billboard.A dynamic and cerebral
collection of soulful pop, the album touches on power dynamics in relationships
and society as well as sexual discovery and empowerment.
by the anthemic voice of frontwoman, Jennifer Pague and supported by the
dynamic drumming of Adam Shumski and guitar stylings of Dane Galloway, Vita and
the Woolf has been melding cross-genre influences in their powerhouse
electronic style since the first EP Fang Song was
self-released in 2014.
The band’s head-turning live show has since grown to reflect
both the range of Pague’s vocals and the music’s shape shifting energy. In 2016
and 17 they have gone on three national support tours along with multiple
festival appearances in summer and fall 2017. They just went on their first
European tour including a stop at Reeperbahn Festival.
Queen of Jeans is a quartet from South
Philadelphia. With 60’s girl group-influenced vocal harmonies and textured
melodic pop instrumentation, the Queens seamlessly blend the best of denimcore
and crockpot pop.
