Venice Queens was conceived while two members were backpacking in India and formed in the 'burbs of Adelaide by five best mates in September 2017, with the aim to create and perform music they love and further put their beloved hometown on the map for great homegrown music.
Two of the friends were brought together after disbanding from shared groups, while the other three had worked for years in projects that had lost their chemistry, direction, and most of all, fun.
Venice Queens' initial jam created four original songs, leading to their debut single "The Strut" being release only a month later in October 2017. An early indicator of the band's prolific writing and work ethic, the quintet hit the local gigging circuit hard, supporting the likes of Aussie indie darlings Lime Cordiale and The Creases, before releasing two more singles by March 2018.
"We've all been slogging it through different musical projects in Adelaide for years, but it instantly felt right when the five of us jammed for the first time. We have a fantastic dynamic and we want to take Venice Queens as far as we can, for as long as we possibly can - we plan to make it our life's work," says the band.
Recorded and mixed at Deep Blue Studios by Reid Jones in Adelaide and mastered by legendary engineerSteve Smart at Studio 301, Venice Queens' latest single "Bad Heart" sees the group once again pivot their sound across the rock genre with snippets of surf and alt-rock with plenty of groove sandwiched between.
"The new track came out of a jam on one of those days where, ironically, nothing creatively seems to be gelling. We stripped the drum pattern back to basics and built the track up from a simple chord progression, and with the lyrics exploring the ups and downs of a toxic-yet-addictive relationship we think we've concocted an evil, but pretty cool track," says the band.
Over the next few months Venice Queens will hit the road for their first interstate shows for the 'Bad Heart Tour' before jumping back in the studio to work on their next singles and debut album.
