ELECTRIC STREET QUEENS: Queen Sized: LP

Any femme-fronted band that simultaneously thanks Satan and a security team for success has my attention. Queen Sized boasts Runaways vibes, embodying style and levity in nine songs that range from silly to sexy, like a possessed leather cat suit. This album rips all the way through, from its opener “Hot Pants from Hell” all the way to the closer “Cheap Thrills,” which energetically builds up into vocalist Coco shouting out thank yous like a rock’n’roll singer thrust on stage at a hardcore show, recognizing studio engineers, listeners, and commuters. Electric Street Queens aren’t trying to change the world, they’re just trying to wear some sweet hot pants, play rock’n’roll, and have a good time calling out scumbags and vibing with the dark lord—and I’m into it! –Candace Hansen (Little Queenie)
