"Crystals" - new single release by her Majesty. By K.K.W 

As the sound-check was finished in the small bar, the lights were raised just a bit more, the audience seemed full of anticipation. Each with a drink in hand and a smile on their face.

John Pasagiannis stood on the edge of the stage, the walls behind him and other band members bathed in dim lights. As their set began, a generous wave of electricity and passion filled the room. That evening @ Rockwood music hall saw the premiere of their new single "Crystals" - a slow-paced, tender song full of romantic yearnings. 

"She draws the curtain, watches the dust dance round her feet...", the heartfelt lyrics carried by lead singer John's voice. Elegant sound-waves, with interesting arrangements - the bands playing is tight - evoking feelings of splendid, nostalgic days. Jody Porter (Fountains Of Wayne) joins the band, adding a generous dose of surreal guitar-work, enhancing the dream-like quality of the over-all song. "Crystals" is certainly one of their best songs, totally imbued with so much energy its beautiful.  

I've come to realize that her Majesty is one of the more interesting bands, at present in New York City. With a sound thats unique, full of vivid and often abstract themes, they fold you into particular, genuine, wonderful emotions.
