Prima Queen is an all-female indie/alternative rock band fronted by songwriting duo and best friends Louise Macphail (Bristol, UK) and Kristin McFadden (Chicago, USA).

 

Combining vulnerable and nostalgic storytelling with light-hearted lyrical imagery, their ethereal yet gritty style draws influences from artists such as Julia Jacklin, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus.

Tell us the factors you consider in choosing a song as your favourite.

Kristin: Lyrics I connect with and find interesting, but also nice melodies.

 

Louise: When you hear something really relatable expressed lyrically in a way you’ve not thought about before.

Tell us the names of the songwriters you will collaborate with if you have the chance.

Kristin: Joni Mitchell, Prince, Ray LaMontagne.

Tell us your favourite TV show and state your reason.

Kristin: I really love the show ‘Easy’ right now on Netflix because it portrays a lot of different types of struggles in relationships, and the whole show feels so real. Also, it’s set in Chicago, which is where I’m from so that’s an extra bonus.

 

Louise: Killing Eve! All the badass women…

Tell us your best mood to create a song.

Kristin: Well fed, slept and watered. Usually, the morning is best.

 

Louise: Confused about something usually – I find songwriting the best way of trying to understand and process feelings about things.

Tell us your interpretation of fame or success.

Kristin: Someone you don’t know singing your lyrics at your show.

 

Louise: Being able to make enough money to live off making music.

Tell us about your experience performing on stage for the first time or recording in the studio for the first time.

Kristin: The first gig we ever played as a band was at the Water Rats. We made our drummer and bassist (both guys) wear blue wigs because we wanted to be an all-female band. Thank god we have real women now!

Tell us how you approach songwriting.

Louise: One of us will have an idea for the concept of a song usually based on one of our own experiences. Then the other person helps facilitate the most honest form of telling the story. Since we’re best friends we know all of each other’s stories and feelings, so we’re really good at helping each other make the song the truest to ourselves.

.

Tell us how you deal with rejection.

Kristin: It’s a lot easier to deal with rejection because there are two of us. It’s comforting to have someone who’s in the same position as you and feeling the same things. We keep each other motivated and inspired.

 

Louise: I think if you’re a solo artist it could be difficult to separate yourself from the music you make, so could make rejection difficult. However because there are two of us there’s a bit more separation which makes it easier for us to deal with rejection – it can still be hard sometimes though!

Elaborate on the song.

Louise: Because Kristin had to move back to America in 2016 for a year we had to work around the time difference between America and England by sending voice memos of song ideas and playing together over FaceTime. ‘Milk Teeth’ is one of the songs we wrote together in this period and is based on two really bad heartbreaks we had around the same time on opposite sides of the world. The conversations we were having as best friends helped us process our feelings and then led to us writing the song.

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

Kristin: We wanted our band name to be feminine and powerful, so we knew we liked ‘queen’ being part of it. Then we liked the sound of the word ‘prima’ because it refers to a ‘prima donna.’

 

Louise: The title of the track, ‘Milk Teeth’ comes from a lyric in the song referring to the feeling of ice cream on your baby teeth as a child – the sensation of brain freeze can feel similar to the vulnerability and complete loss of control experienced when heartbroken.
