Beauty Queens – “Genuine Leather”


Cardiff-based duo Beauty Queens strut a stylish appeal on “Genuine Leather,” showcasing a hypnagogic pop appeal with a sort of late-night rumination.

Eerie, submerged vocal feelings arise into peppier guitar jangles, traversing aptly into lyrical visions of a darkened room. Prancing guitar twangs complement the layered vocal haunts during the chorus, while the verses intrigue with a spacious glow. Lonesome-sounding guitar lines, approaching the four-minute turn, further enthrall. “Genuine Leather” is a fantastic debut from this promising project.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2023’ Spotify playlist.
