Jamaican Queens have released a new digital and 12″ vinyl single for their new song “Bored + Lazy” via Mishka/Freakish Pleasures label with distribution by tastemaker label Mishka NYC. The single, alongside the studio version of the new track “Joe” appear on side A with side B containing three feature remixes by legendary techno music pioneer Kevin Saunderson, avant-garde Detroit house producer Coyote Clean Up, and hip-hop producer/DJ Nick Speed featuring Dopehead from Bruiser Brigade. Jamaican Queens is on tour now and heading to SXSW this March before a month long European tour. A full tour itinerary is below.

Called a dark and haunting oeuvre, “Bored + Lazy” features an infectious chorus that lingers with the listener long after it’s been played. Recently making its premiere at Entertainment Weekly, the song has been described as “if Ian Curtis were to be the cure to Destiny’s Child’s depression.” Check out the “Bored + Lazy” Nick Speed remix featuring Dopehead at IMPOSE.

Hailing from Detroit, Jamaican Queens are songwriter and producer Ryan Spencer, producer and engineer Adam Pressley, and percussionist Ryan Clancy. Together the trio home record and produce a raw and abrasive form of pop music focused on dark themes. Their sound incorporates electronic, electric, and acoustic instrumentation with each song arranged according to its specific needs, while always existing within the verse/chorus structure of “pop music.”

The band released their debut full-length album Wormfood in 2013 to critical acclaim. Spencer draws inspiration for his lyrics from his mercurial relationship with modern love, the undeniably violent tendencies of the human spirit, and his sometimes-debilitating bouts with anxiety and depression. Combined with the eccentric personalities of Pressley and Clancy the result is an encyclopedic appreciation of everything pop, rendering their songs challengingly unique and wistfully familiar.
