Did you know ‘Prima’ has two definitions? I didn’t. The first is “the most important performer”, which is what most of us would think. But the second is the ‘the consumption of raw apples’. I’d say surely that isn’t right, but why would free dictionary dot com lie to me?!

Anyway, I don’t think Prima Queen are the royalty of raw apples, but they will be the most important performers to see in Newcastle when they arrive during their UK tour, which will take them to The Cluny on Wednesday 23rd November.  

Having previously supported the likes of Wet Leg, the band are quickly becoming one of the more popular bands from the London alternative rock scene. The melodic and catchy Chew My Cheeks is a great representation of the band, with its electric guitar-driven instrumental that’ll have you chanting “You make it easy” over and over. The band’s newest song, Eclipse, leans more into the rockier elements of their sound, being a fun foot-stomper.  

Supporting them will be Tapir! – a name to be exclaimed. The group have just released their debut EP, Act 1 (The Pilgrim), which features whispery vocals over beautiful folktronica melodies, and displays some really great songwriting best seen with their song The Nether (Face to Face), which is an ode to a particular 2010s video game.

Prima Queen and Tapir! play The Cluny, Newcastle on Wednesday 23rd November.
