Queen of Jeans // "More to Love" Music Video Premiere

Ever used a dating app? Ever felt the sheer torture of being ghosted on said dating app? Queen of Jeans knows this feeling all too well, showing us an awkward tinder interaction in their newest music video for "More to Love" which premiered today over at Uproxx.

"The track “More To Love” is a modern take on the doo-wop sounds of the mid-twentieth century, with gorgeous ethereal harmonic vocal melodies drifting atop clean guitars and a simple drum beat." - Zac Gelfand

We're really excited for Dig Yourself to come out at the end of March, and we know you are too! If you haven't yet, make sure to pre-order the album here.
