    Quivers

    Indie Pop

    Quivers, of Melbourne, Australia, have a third release of cathartic jangle-damaged pop, Oyster Cuts, coming out via Merge Records and more North American dates than ever to celebrate. Mostly headline, there’s also some support dates for David Kilgour (The Clean), and Merge pop leaders Superchunk. The road to this moment has been a winding one, the best kind, with a performance for KEXP, US and Australian tours, and even R.E.M. sliding into the band’s DMs with fire emojis after their full cover of the band’s Out of Time. For musical reference points this new album is propelled by melodies that recall Galaxie 500 and The Pretenders, with both Sam and now Bella taking lead vocals and group vocals from everyone. It’s sunshine pop with blood in the water, with tape loops that circle like sharks, and twin guitars that glisten while the bass and drums roll in like waves. Pitchfork described Quivers' last record as “the sound of bedsit 1980s college-rock thrust into the big-tent environs of 21st-century indie, like a Go-Betweens with Coachella-conquering ambitions….and it’s absolutely glorious”, but Quivers only believe in a ragged glory, that live music should sometimes fall apart and be a genuine interaction with each audience. So they will continue to confront love and grief and the glow of friendship from all angles, and hope to meet you on the next winding road ahead.
     
    Press Quotes:
     
    “It’s the sound of bedsit 1980s college-rock thrust into the big-tent environs of 21st-century indie, like a Go-Betweens with Coachella-conquering ambitions or a Smiths with greater pub sing-along appeal. And it’s absolutely glorious.” 
    - Pitchfork
     
    “Quietly spectacular”  - Brooklyn Vegan
     
    “Those big, heart-filling harmonies are a highlight of the record. As are the chiming, jangling guitars that call to mind the classic, timeless guitar pop and college rock of artists like Big Star, R.E.M. and The Go-Betweens. But it's Nicholson's rich songwriting that ultimately makes Golden Doubt so captivating.” - Zan Rowe
     
    “Classic Antipodean Indie Pop, 9/10” - Backseat Mafia
     
    “...one of the best songs I’ve heard in years... that song reminded me this is why we do this. I listened to it like a weirdo, like 8 times in a row.” - John Richards, KEXP

    Razor Braids

    Music

    A big wave is coming. A wave of sound, of feeling; of arm after arm shooting up to meet the giddy noise of a live show. And the force behind it? Brooklyn’s own Razor Braids. Through soaring harmonies and driving guitars, the queer femme trio has honed a magnetic sound that combines the vulnerable self-awareness of indie rock with dynamic instrumentation anchored in a 90s alternative ethos. After the release of singles “Nashville, Again” and a cover of Weezer’s “Buddy Holly,”  Razor Braids opened up the main stage at Boston Calling 2023 — sharing a stage with The Beaches and The Foo Fighters — and toured through the Midwest, South, and East Coast as headliners and opening for The Worriers. The band has brought their energetic stage presence to SXSW as official artists as well as Music Hall of Williamsburg, Sultan Room, and Elsewhere as direct support for Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Jigsaw Youth and Anna Shoemaker, respectively. In addition to multiple features on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlists, Razor Braids’ music has been warmly received by Blogothque, BrooklynVegan, NME, SiriusXMU, WFMU, Philthy Mag, Creem, Analogue Trash, The Boston Globe, and more. In 2024, the band plans to tour their upcoming sophomore album, Big Wave, expanding on their singular balance of tightly layered vocals, heavy riffs and reflective lyrics with more boldness and sense of purpose than ever before.
