Le Queens by Plants And Animals

Plants and Animals have released “Le Queens,” the new single is off from their forthcoming release The Jungle out October 23 via Secret City Records. A French song featuring Adèle Trottier-Rivard on vocals, the song was inspired by an evening spent in Queens, NY.

From Plants And Animals:

“Woody got this machine that makes a drum kit play samples and he didn’t know how to use it. But he chopped up some of Warren’s guitar chords and played them with his bass drum anyway. So it all ended up as this wobbly, dreamy jam that we all got attached to. Nic wrote most of the lyrics in the lineup at Home Depot. They’re about an evening in Queens, dancing among strangers, time moving backwards in slow motion and falling in love.”

The songs on The Jungle examine personal experiences made in a volatile world, and how they reflect that world right back at us, even by accident. There’s one song Nic sings to his teenage son who was dealing with climate change anxiety and drifting into uncharted independence. The band carries it out slowly together into a sweet blue horizon. Warren wrote the words to another shortly after losing his father. It’s about the things we inherit not necessarily being the things we want. In a broader sense, that’s where a lot of people find themselves right now.
