I am so glad THEESatisfaction put out a video for this song. It gives me an excuse to song that I should have been covered ages ago. "QueenS" is a near perfect song, with the same off-kilter R&B and soul that of Montreal have been crafting in their past few albums, but with a smoothness that Kevin Barns could only dream of thanks to the perfect call and response and split vocal techniques of Catherine Harris-White and Stasia Irons. The video captures the feel of "QueenS" perfectly, the band having a party with friends. It captures the sense of having a fun and a good time, not in a deeply cliche way, but one that's built on an earnestness in wanting to enjoy oneself with others too.
