Queen Zee bare their teeth with new track 'Hunger Pains'

Open wide, Queen Zee have dropped another slice of jagged excellence from their upcoming debut album.

'Hunger Pains' follows on from the angular 'Sass or Die' and adds colour to Queen Zee's rainbow-streaked attack. 

If you like your fury cut with playful sincerity, check it out below.

"'Hunger Pains' is one of the last songs myself and Jay wrote together when we were a two piece," explains Zee. "So in a lot of ways it's old school Queen Zee but at the same time it's looking forward and us showing our influences from R&B and pop more so than the rawer early material. 

"It's written about desperation played through the imagery of a ménage à trois with God and the Devil. And I guess we're asking, who are you gonna sleep with tonight?”

'Queen Zee' is out February 8th. The band are set to play it in full at a hometown show on December 13th, at Liverpool's 24 Kitchen Street, before heading out on a UK headline tour in February.
