Queens Club – Young Giant

March 30th, 2010 by Ryan Nisley

Besides a really cool design on their album cover, Queens Club rocks out with some great tunes.  The band assembled in 2008 and is composed of the ex-members of the metal band The Chariot.  Their new CD, Young Giant, was recently released on Tooth and Nail Records, which has signed similar popular bands like Anberlin.  As I listened to the album, I was struck by the catchy guitar riffs and the energy that this group generates.  This CD is packed with a number of great songs that are all worth listening to.

The first song that got my attention was “Issinair.”  It immediately hits with a hard guitar riff backed up by a rolling drumbeat that builds the energy to introduce the vocals.  I was hooked as soon as the vocals came in.  I think this band worth listening to because they have a solid sound that is catchy and memorable.

If I could describe the sound of Queens Club I’d say that they are a combination of Anberlin and The Academy Is.  They have the hard guitar riffs and energy of Anberlin with catchy pop vocals similar to The Academy Is.  Overall, I was impressed with Queens Club because their sound is instantly addicting.  When I heard the first two songs I was eager to hear the rest of the album.  I think this band has the potential to be as successful as Anberlin or The Academy Is and I hope that Queens Club gets more attention in the near future.
