Queen Zee And The Sasstones release their new video for ‘Hunger Pains’ today. The lo-fi, high-energy video reflects the punk rock sexuality and street politics of the track’s lyrics, and includes footage of the band performing one of their infamously raucous live shows.
‘Hunger Pains’ is the latest single to be taken from their EP ‘Eat My Sass’, released earlier this year.
Drawing heavily on a variety of musical influences, from the teenage rampage that was the 70’s garage and punk rock explosion to the maddest, wildest elements of exploratory 80’s pop – blurring the lines between everything, from sexuality and gender to global politics. Here at last is a band who talk the talk, walk the walk and give so much of a fuck that they really couldn’t give a single fuck who they irritate along the way.
Ultimately, they say, they’re more influenced by the city’s working class politics, LGBT+ community and diversity than by what they see as a stagnant music scene around them.
“We’ve got no time for music, art or politics that are bland. Bands that sing songs about nothing, that aren’t musically adventurous; art that is just a heap of clay with no purpose except for Facebook likes and Instagram followers.”
Fronted by the direct and articulate Queen Zee (vocals/guitar) the Liverpool band is completed by fellow songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Em Dee (guitar), Frank Flag (bass) and The Gimp (drums).
Queen Zee And The Sasstones are currently touring the UK, supporting Cabbage on select dates, too. Full live schedule below:
