She’s The Queen – Shades Of Blue (Spotify)

“Charming melodic arps, wide and soft uplifting vocals in a fine blend of good groove.”

Lyrically, this song is about compartmentalizing memories and saving them for when you're able to finally face yourself. The chorus teeters between the desire to believe that you had no control in the outcome of a relationship, with the fact that you're still haunted by what could have been. Written and recorded in our home studio, the song began with a harpy synth and was built up with guitar and our Moog Little Phatty.

She’s the Queen is an American electropop music duo signed to Electronic Rumors. Based in Portland, Maine, She’s the Queen is composed of Emily White (vocals, songwriting) and Andrew Kuryloski (production, songwriting, guitar).

The duo met and formed while attending school together at Ithaca college in upstate New York. Shortly after college, the duo moved to New York City and released their self-titled EP, She’s the Queen, which features their first electro hit ‘Waiting Game’.

In 2012 the duo’s hit track ‘Waiting Game’ was featured on the Electronic Rumors compilation album alongside Futurecop!, Fear of Tigers, Vanbot and other notable acts. The duo released two follow up EPs through their label featuring ‘Talk to Me’, ‘The Way’ and 'Cold Heart'.

She's the Queen's music has been featured on FOX TV's 'Sleepy Hollow', Showtime's 'The Real L Word' and The Style Network's 'Betsy Johnson XOX' to name a few.
