Julianna Riolino – Queen of Spades [Listen]

Today the Toronto based musician Julianna Riolino who plays in Daniel Romano’s The Outfit is branching out on her own with the song called Queen of Spades.
The third single is taken from Julianna’s debut album called All Blue which comes out on October 14, 2022 via You’ve Changed Records.
Another great energetic twangy country-esque rocking vibe track.

About the song by the artist:
“Queen of Spades” arrives as another snappy installment of Riolino’s knack for power-pop-adjacent alt-country in the same vein as Jenny Lewis, Emmylou Harris and Judee Sill.

The sway and twang of “Queen of Spades” veils references to the other three suits in a deck of cards, Riolino rewarding closer listens though even the surface level is downright Parton-esque.

“And it breaks my heart in two/ Pieces of a portrait be/ Happiness and fragility,” she sings, pedal steel guitar gliding through her tight harmonies, the song a musical middle finger to an insincere lover.
