Mediterranean alt-rockers The smallest Creature unveil glimpse into inner battle between reminiscence and the future in gritty new single ‘Queen’

Cyprus-based rock outfit, The smallest Creature returns with a fuzz-soaked grunge number that delves into the menacing grip of devotion, longing, and nostalgia in their latest single ‘Queen’. Following the anthemic rock track ‘What Color Is the Rain’ released this past May, the band’s latest offering is a spellbinding sonic propulsion of intoxicating rock energy, fueled by electrifying guitar lines and cast in an avant sense.

‘Queen’ tells of the bewildering and lugubrious turn nostalgia can take, laying bare the internal conflict between progress for the future and succumbing to the seductive allure of past memories. The band break through the conflict with a heaving undercurrent of head-spinning textures culminating in the outro’s blistering guitar solo. The track is accompanied by a lyric video that portrays the turmoil with visions of queens and hearts morphing from one to the other.

Daisy the Great Share Modern Summer Dating Anthem “Looking U Up”

“’Looking U Up’ is a song about dating in the age of social media.
