Queen Cult’s Stop Calling cements their status as one of the most exciting emerging bands of 2024

Fresh off a tour with Fort Hope, a string of live shows plus a slot at Y Not Festival and 2024 is already shaping up to be a huge year for Macclesfield trio, Queen Cult. And mirroring their plans for the summer, Queen Cult continues to assert their dominance in the alt-rock scene with their latest single, Stop Calling – a fierce and unapologetic anthem that demands attention and commands respect.

From the opening notes, it’s evident that Queen Cult means business, there’s a tether, and we’ve just found the end of it. The rumbling reverb-soaked bass from Piers Jarvis and heavy guitar melodies set the stage for Maisie Johnson’s powerhouse vocals. With shades of Royal Blood meeting Paramore, the trio delivers a rallying cry against unwanted attention and boundary violations.

Frontwoman Maisie Johnson said: “Stop Calling came about when I witnessed someone receiving unwanted attention and they felt frustrated that their boundaries were being constantly crossed. Sometimes you just want to tell someone to shut the fuck up! I had the riff for ages so it all just started to come together. The stomp came from wanting to give people something to dance to. Dancing after all does relieve stress!”

Maisie’s lyrics are raw and impassioned, with a cathartic instrumental release in the atmospheric bridge driven by Brodie Carson’s thumping drums, the track building to a climax that will take no prisoners in a pit.  With Stop Calling, Queen Cult proves once again that they are a force to be reckoned with. Unapologetic, aggressive and authentic, with each new release, they only further cement their status as one of the most exciting bands to watch in 2024.
