Video Premiere! FuzzQueen – Sailing Empty Tonight

fuzzqueen
After touring extensively for many years, Erin Frisby and Chris Stelloh, better known by their performer names Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray, felt the winds of change. Drawn to settle down from life on the road, they joined their drummer and musical collaborator Ben Tufts at the 16th Street House, home to more than a few DC musicians and frequent host of many live music shows. And acknowledging the stylistic shift in their songwriting, they decided to rebrand their collaboration as FuzzQueen.

In advance of FuzzQueen’s debut EP Xenia I out later this year, they dropped the lead-off single “Sailing Empty Tonight” a few weeks ago, and today Hometown Sounds is honored & thrilled to premiere the music video! Shot in their native California Coast, videographer Nick Goldring presents visuals reminiscent of vintage gelatin silver photography. The lush desert scenery reflect MS&YW’s extensive time touring, and the mystical storyline fits with FuzzQueen’s lush arrangements.

DC bands almost universally overlook the power of dressing up on stage. Wake up & take note! Let FuzzQueen show you how it’s done, with exotic costumes and makeup to compliment their distinctively rustic look. Their sound incorporates the strong songwriting of their Americana roots with fuzzed-out 90s guitar riffs. Erin, Chris and Ben are nomadic explorers of American rock music, with 70s psychedelia and 90s modern rock fueling the neverending road trip.

FuzzQueen headlines the Saturday night segment of the Ben Tufts & Friends Showcase at Jammin’ Java in Vienna, alongside Black Dog Prowl, Accidents and Ben’s newest band Virginia Creep featuring JR from Pig Destroyer. Ben will guest star on this week’s episode of the Hometown Sounds podcast, playing select songs from this weekend’s big show. Stay tuned!
