Queen of Jeans covered Aaliyah (listen), played w/ Girlpool @ 3 Days in Philly (pics)
Philadelphia's Queen of Jeans, who released their debut EP last year, have recorded a cover of Aaliyah's "Are You that Somebody" (you may know the original from the Dr. Doolittle soundtrack). There are no Timbaland-style beats in their version but they kept the original's lush harmony style, adding their own surfy twang. It works surprisingly well and that cover premieres in this post. Listen:
Queens of Jeans recorded the cover in support of Red Bull Sound Select’s 3 Days in Philly which kicked off Thursday night (10/12), and had the band opening for Girlpool at Underground Arts. The Dove & The Wolf also played, and pictures from the show are in the gallery above. 3 Days in Philly continues Friday night with a show headlined by Noname. Syd (of the Internet) headlines Saturday.
QoJ have a few East Coast shows lined up next week, including Boston, DC, and Brooklyn at Alphaville on October 19 with Ritual Talk and headliners Vita and the Woolf (tickets). All dates are listed below.
