Christine and the Queens – “Christine” (a.k.a. “Tilted”)

Sounds like… slowly waking up and peeling your eyelids apart as you feel the itch of grass against your back. The sun beats through the shadows of a tall structure leaning over you. A woman is sitting next to you casually talk/singing in your direction and looks as if she expects you to understand everything she is saying. You don’t. At all. But somehow don’t mind and are pretty sure you get the gist anyway. You lay your head back down and soak in the sun.

Location: France.

Future: Already a bit of a “thing” in France, Christine’s first US release, the Saint Claude EP, is out April 14th on Neon Gold and features the track “Christine” but under the name “Tilted”. Confusing. Stream a few tracks off it here.

MONARCHY like BLACK, THE COLOUR OF their rad album art. MY HEART likes Monarchy.


the heart it is a beast

♫ Monarchy – Black The Colour of My Heart (Demo)

Ooooooo, yeah. And this is only a demo? And it sounds so good? And they have sweet ass album art, too? And they have another track titled “Gold In The Fire” that is equally awesome but in a different way? So you are saying that these Londoners aren’t just another electro-gimmick group? And that “Gold In The Fire” jam is getting released by Neon Gold, the label behind singles from TBE faves like Passion Pit, Marina & The Diamonds, Gotye, Yes Giantess, Little Red, Ellie Goulding, and Penquin Prison? So we are stoked, right? Yes, you are correct.
