Space Queen is the stoner rock evolution of power trio Jenna Earle (guitar/vocals), Karli MacIntosh (drums/vocals) and Seah Maister (bass/keys/vocals). Space Queen takes the signature haunting vocal harmonies of the trio’s former folk project (Sound of the Sun) and sends them soaring over a cosmic canvas of neo-psychedelic rock. Driving beats from MacIntosh provide an anchor for Earle’s heavy distortion and fuzzy 70s-style riffs, while Maister keeps everything grounded on bass, or shoots beyond the stratosphere with spacey synths and intergalactic organ. The band released their debut EP in 2020 which garnered a ton of favourable press and college radio play, including landing on the earshot charts. Space Queen was featured on Nardwuar The Human Serviette’s radio show for a month leading up to their EP release. Space Queen has thrived in 2021-2022 from opening for bands such as Blackwater Holylight, The Well, RIP, Black Mastiff and Molten Lava, as well as headlining Tune it down, Turn it up Festival and playing virtual editions of Massif Festival and Fallen Fest. SQ’s sophomore EP will be released in the fall of 2022, as well as a single mixed by Desert Rock legend Dave Catching. Plenty of plans (and a Western Canada tour) are in the works for the remainder of 2022 into 2023. These next few years are shaping up to be busy ones!
