Consisting of sisters Jennifer (guitar/vocals) and Katherine (bass) O’Neil, along with lifelong friend Mat on Drums, the trio, who were born and raised in Hackney Wick, have been making music together since their school days. Under the moniker INDIAN QUEENS they take their influence from the ever-changing environment of the city with and musically mine a similar field to bands such as Warpaint, Radiohead and Massive Attack. Their sound is an atmospheric blend of soaring guitars and solid drum beats that evoke and uplift.
The band describe the project as… “a way to escape. We didn’t know how to record an album but we begged, stole and borrowed, got evening jobs so we could record all day. We worked every hour given to us because we knew we had something special at our fingertips. Growing up under the shadows of concrete giants, the songs are a reflection of our city’s energy.”
