Ahead of Their Debut EP Prinze George Play Mercury Lounge Tonight

February 10th, 2015

Naomi Almquist (vocals) and Kenny Grimm (production and multi-instrumentalist) grew up as childhood friends outside Washington, D.C., in Prince George’s County, Md. Later, the two met Isabelle De Leon (drums) while she was in college and things took off from there, forming the band Prinze George, now based in Brooklyn, in 2013. Almquist has a keen interest in bands fronted by women, so it should probably come as no surprise that the hook-heavy pop singles they’ve released have won the band comparisons to the likes of Lana Del Rey and MS MR. Their debut EP comes out next month, but you can catch Prinze George—along with Ayertonight at Mercury Lounge.
