All The Queen’s Ravens are an enigmatic six piece at large on the London folk scene. Their music is a flamboyant bi-lingual mix of folk and americana alluding to blues, gospel and sultry flamenco, delivering a foot-stomping, dress-swirling bagful of attention-grabbing magic.
Fronted by two ladies with a devilish vocal chemistry and style, their songs take a sidelong glance at obsession, death and good old fashioned romance, feverishly combining influences diverse as Kate Bush, Johnny Cash, PJ Harvey, Slayer, and the Punch Brothers to name but a few….
Their undeniable talent and irrepressible energy makes All The Queen’s Ravens’ live performance a truly captivating experience… think the soundtrack to the best Tarantino film he never made.
A little about the EP
Aura Negra – a tale of forbidden fruits made cryptic by lyrics that alternate between Spanish and English in the heady setting of lilting mandolin strings
Eden Project – a dark narrative that voyeuristically guides us through the private anguish of addiction over a deceptively optimistic country rhythm
Valiente – a passionate flamenco lament caught in a torrent of orchestral cat calls and a merciless bass line
Mind You Care – a chant to the fire within, may it burn fierce lest it not burn out and see you in an everlasting bitter state
Profundo – an achingly beautiful Spanish ballad that exposes the fragility of innocence of truth in love unfolding for the first time
Joe – a charging anthem that tells of a womans anger and resistance towards her young lover with an urging sexuality and menace
