Detroit electronic pop pundits Jamaican QueensÂ have listened to your cries and pleas for a sophomore release and have answered with Downers, a 10-trackerÂ full ofÂ eccentric,Â unconventional songwriting fit for the dance floor to the afternoon cruise with the windows down.
Toss the quirky ‘sweet nothings’ ofÂ Magnetic Fields, the glitchy synths fromÂ Low-eraÂ David BowieÂ and theÂ lyrical witticisms from Morrissey and you’ve got Jamaican Queens. Â They have the rare ability to follow traditional pop structures and craft something unexpected and interestingÂ along every turn. Â Embedded layers of sultry harmony and thumping back beats beg your volume dialsÂ upward and onward, and holy smokes is it FUN.
