Light We Made, which was produced by Will Yip (Nothing, Pity Sex), marks a milestone for the band, as this time around they’ve toned down their hardcore and punk-rock roots, to present a body of work that is dominated by soothing, harmonic tracks. The LP’s coherent mood of transcendent moments are driven by the band experimenting with new sonic elements - weaving in dreamy synth chords, melodic guitar riffs, and atmospheric bass grooves and drum beats to hit home the delivery of the songs’ emotional lyrics.

“This album is the culmination of the last 3 years, and how musically the band wanted to be more creative than ever before. We took time off to experience life, pushing ourselves to try things that we previously hadn’t, which in return inspired us to record something that would stand out. This LP is a sonic progression for us, and we’re excited to share it with everyone.”

"Sometimes you just gotta go straight to the elevator pitch: what if the xx came up on American Football instead of Aaliyah? Though his post-production methods put him within the scope of downtempo, monastic R&B, Joey Vannucchi uses the compositional tools of twinkly, technical emo—clean guitar figures criss-crossed in askew time signatures, hopscotching drum rhythms, hushed vocals piecing together desires for someone always out of the frame." - Pitchfork

Queen of Jeans is the grit-pop project of singer/songwriter Miriam Devora, guitarist Matheson Glass, bassist Nina Scotto and drummer Patrick Wall. The music, lush in its retro guitar and ethereal three part harmony composition, is clever while introspective, sparking comparison to the likes of Roy Orbison, Cocteau Twins, and contemporaries Warpaint and Angel Olsen.

The Philadelphia-based band released their debut self-titled EP in January 2016 and has already garnered noteworthy recognition opening for national bands while selling out their own headlining shows in Philadelphia. They took part in WXPN’s XPoNential Music Festival, playing alongside artists such as Brandi Carlisle, Kurt Vile, Alabama Shakes and Ryan Adams, and have gained both national and international radio play, including the BBC in London.

“They got their name by putting a feminist spin on an uber-masculine piece of South Philly signage. They write pointed fuzz-rock songs punctuated by hooky melodies and retro-pop harmonies, washed in a dreamy soundscape. They’re Queen of Jeans, and they’re a band that needs to be on your radar.”
WXPN’s The Key – January 20th, 2016

“With vocal harmonies that sound like a long-lost 1960’s girl group that everyone would have danced to, the combo of Miriam Devora, Matheson Glass, Nina Scotto, and Patrick Wall is a kaleidoscope of jangle and denim. With their self-titled EP as the setting for their live fare, they should be your next band crush.”
