Black & White is a captivating take on mental health with hard hitting lyrics and sweet, soulful melodies.

Queen Colobus release the second single from their upcoming EP.

London, 18th July 2022 Queen Colobus follow their bold first single ’Think Fast’ with another honest and unique track. ‘Black & White’ describes the colour sweetly sliding away from the world and the worries around what it means. Beth Hopkins, bandleader for Queen Colobus, says “I wrote this a few years back – a slower version with just piano and voice. Bringing it to the band brought a fresh perspective on it and made this dreamy kinda wonky sound, which brought the meaning of the song to life. In the frame of mental health, we hope ‘Black & White’ will lull the listener into a captivating new sound world, with you stuck inside it.”

Led by do-it-all Welsh front woman Beth Hopkins on saxophone and vocals, Queen Colobus released the first single off their upcoming EP last month which gained radio play on BBC6 Music, Soho Radio and Balamii, and features on Spotify’s Jazz UK, Fresh Finds Jazz and Fresh Finds UK & IE playlists. Their first EP received support from the likes of Tina Edwards, Soho Radio and Jazz FM’s YolanDa Brown and Tony Minvielle, who called it “a sublime debut”.
