Quivers’ new single ‘When It Breaks’ has a golden jangle that glows so brightly I’m honestly a little bit worried I might get sunburnt listening to it. The band, led by Sam J Nicholson, have a knack for taking dark subject matter and moulding it into euphoric and uplifting pop.

It wouldn’t be a Quivers song without a grin-inducing group chorus, and this one delivers emphatically. If you don’t feel the urge to sing along, you’re dead inside for sure.

Quivers make cathartic guitar pop that jangles and shimmers somewhere between 1980s Australia and 1990s America. Started by Sam Nicholson in Hobart, the now Melbourne band has since toured Australia, NZ, Canada and most recently the US where they showcased at SXSW and filmed a session for KEXP in Seattle. 2018’s debut record ‘We’ll Go Riding on the Hearses’ came out through Hotel Motel Records. On it you might hear the ghosts of early R.E.M. guitars, the earnest lost pop moments of The Triffids or The Church, or the loud melancholy of Teenage Fanclub.
Band Members
Sam J Nicholson, Michael Panton, Bella Quinlan, Holly Thomas.
