Bitter Lips

Bitter Lips by Queen Kwong

Sounding like a cleaner better produced version of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bitter Lips is the lead single taken from Queen Kwong's forthcoming album.

It begins with a strong, Black Rebel-esq baseline, keen to stamp it's authority early on before the whole tune evolves with ounces of menace and distorted gusto into this rousing anthem. The kind of song you romantically picture narrating your younger-self as he or she stumbles home after too much cider on the bench, drunk in the loved up euphoria of youth, feeling mystical, although you have no idea what that means. I pine for those days when alcohol made me feel good. Although nothing with proof has passed my lips today, this track makes me feel drunk and dam right positive. Is Queen Kwong the key to sobriety?
