Queens Club, formed in 2008 by ex-members of The Chariot, are unashamedly accessible, with a dash of attitude. Ok, more than a dash. A ton of attitude. In fact, one can't help but call to mind the energy found in bands like Franz Ferdinand or Bloc Party upon listening, but comparisons aside, QUEENS CLUB brings plenty of originality to the table. With YOUNG GIANT, the bands debut full length, QUEENS CLUB are destined heirs to the rock throne and are ready to rule the hearts of music lovers worldwide.
Skeptical? When the full length releases in 2010 you can borrow my extra pair of dancing shoes. Fans who have already had a chance to hear the band know exactly what I'm talking about, and those who don't will most assuredly join the Club.

Queens Club is one of those bands that you'll either love or hate based on how well you take their style of music. Young Giant is really the stepping stone here as some people are divided based on the sounds that come through their speakers. The way to best describe their sound is if mainstream band Franz Ferdinand and punk were put in a blender to see what would come out and the results, I can say, are very satisfying. All 12 tracks are jam packed with energy and fun. The only sour grape in this bunch is the penultimate track, "I'm American," which ends up ruining the flow that has been consistent throughout the other tracks. But other then that, Young Giant is a fun album that is one of the most unique albums of 2010.
