After making their mark in the Manchester music scene earlier this year with a number of energetic live performances, Queasy have just dropped their second single Build A Wall.
Taken from their upcoming EP Promised Land, the single wastes no time in disguising a political message already well established in the band’s subject matter. There are big hints of Rage Against the Machine throughout, from the colossal guitar lines to the fiery vocals. It’s a hard-hitting, huge-riff-laden ‘fuck the establishment’ of a track.
On the meaning behind the song, Queasy say:
“It’s about the misuse and abuse of power, the walls between countries, communities and people. Do you really think the government are going to save us?”
2017 continues to be a promising year for the five-piece who have been capturing attention with a headline slot at Sonder Festival’s Sonder Presents, as well as supporting post-punk Bristolians, Idles, who have gone on to support the legendary Foo Fighters.
Build A Wall arrives as a follow up to the band’s debut single, ‘I’m Sold’, which Queasy also have a number of live gigs lined up, including a set alongside the hyped Sleeptalking at The Castle, Manchester on 22nd November, and are ready to bring their music to new audiences with trademark ferocity.
