QUEUE at H STREET FESTIVAL!
Queue is a rock and roll band living in New York City. Formed by school friends Liv Price, Aida Mekonnen, and Steven Vannelli; the band writes guitar-driven music inspired by personal experience and moments of self-reflection.
Queue’s debut single “Falling Into Skies” landed on Spotify’s tastemaking “Fresh Finds” playlist and was quickly lauded for its lush, moody vocals and chiming guitars by publications ranging from Drunken Werewolf to Pause Musicale. They followed with a second single, “More,” an aching ballad that Consequence of Sound called “a soft yet scintillating track […] teetering between dream folk and indie rock.”
The three-piece went on the road in support of these releases, playing shows across the east coast with Middle Kids, Eighty Ninety, pronoun, and Cape Francis. Afterwards, the band returned to the studio, working with producer Ben Rice at Degraw Sound in Brooklyn. The result of these sessions was “Frontier”, an energetic fever dream with driving guitars and anthemic vocal melodies, and “Aimless Kid.” These releases would mark the third time the band was featured on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist and were Queue’s biggest successes to date, garnering over 75,000 streams and praise from blogs like WXPN’s The Key and Indie Shuffle.
After supporting Editors on the Violence tour in May 2018, the band released “Float Away,” an infectious new single they describe as being the culmination of all their influences, motivations, and ambitions.
Queue is now in the studio recording their debut EP, which is slated for a Summer 2019 release.
