What’s old is new again. In a time when the dark heavy music of Black Sabbath rears it’s head in the form of new female fronted bands like Electric Citizen and Blood Ceremony, Queen Crescent is a new budding band channeling the 70’s style extremely well.
Fronted by Melissa Vu who not only sings like a Grace Slick-esque goddess but wails on the flute, the band’s new single “Zodiacal Woman” displays extremely tight and heavy riffs. The Oakland based four-piece released their self-titled in 2015 and are headed back to the studio to record new songs with Chaz Bundick of Toro y Moi.
As the band summons some mystical spirit, the songs picks up into a psychedelic heaviness. These girls can shred! Check out their video below by Ethan Indorf and Doug Avery.
