Inspired by the love relationship between novelists Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf, Philadelphia’s Vita and the Woolf just released their long-awaited new album, Tunnels on June 16 on Believe Global Label Services.

The project has received widespread critical acclaim, among others finding a fan in M83 who wrote about them for USA Today as well as recently 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.

Driven by the anthemic voice of front woman, 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 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 toured with Rasputina, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and Bell X1 with other festival appearances scheduled for summer 2017 including Firefly Music Festival.

Queen of Jeans

Queen of Jeans is a a female-fronted 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. They’re also probably your mom’s favorite band, but they don’t like to make a big deal out of it.

“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

“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.” Philadelphia Magazine
