Der Opium Queen 

In the Clouds 

[First Second Label]

Landing on Dublin’s First Second Label is In the Clouds, the debut release from Der Opium Queen. While it’s important not to judge a book by it’s cover, In the Clouds serves as an accurate depiction of the musical content presented her.

The entire release is a trip through lush, heady exotica, tropical soundscapes and twinkling melodies – all framed aloft warm, organic rhythms with one foot on the dancefloor and the other in the forest.

An excellent debut from Der Opium Queen.
