Amsterdam, Netherlands-based Danish-Dutch trio Subterranean Street Society first hit my radar around this time last year thanks to their track and video Fear of Fond Farewells. At the time I was taken with their emotional articulation. Their latest shows a different side of their sound, exploring the absurdity of a royal institution. It’s called God Couldn’t Save The Queen.
By Graeme Smith
God Couldn’t Save The Queen gives us a grungier side of the Subterranean Street Society sound, with jangly, looping guitars and a laidback tempo. Its lyrics pull no punches, aiming criticism at both the Danish and British royal families, questioning why they are so worshipped. If you’re a royalist, maybe give this one a pass.
The track will feature on Subterranean Street Society’s new album Bleep, set for release on 8 March 2024. You can check out the video for God Couldn’t Save The Queen below.
