Quivers release new single, 'Videostores'

Melbourne band Quivers have released the music video for their cover of R.E.M.’s ‘Losing My Religion’. The cover is the first track off Quivers’ complete re-imagining of the iconic group’s 1991 album ‘Out Of Time’. Quivers initially released the cover last week after being asked by Seattle label Turntable Kitchen to remake a classic album. The full album of covers will be released on vinyl later this year.

The music video was filmed by Ursula Woods in southern Tasmania earlier this month. Watch the clip below: “The middle era of R.E.M. is the one I grew up hearing through the next room – where this opaque angular jangle band becomes an MTV monster,” Quivers’ Sam Nicholson said in a statement. “We spent four days in a rehearsal studio with our producer Matthew Redlich (Holy Holy, Husky), and made it up as we went along. We all sang, and Bella [Quinlan] takes the lead on our next song out – ‘Texarkana’.”

As for the music video, Nicholson said the clip makes him feel “homesick” for Tasmania. Their dog looking at an albino wallaby is all I need to get through a few more weeks before we can hopefully record music together again.”

This is the 1st song from Quivers’ song by song re-imagining of R.E.M.’s classic Out of Time (1991) for Seattle vinyl label Turntable Kitchen. Out now through their vinyl club. https://www.turntablekitchen.com/2020…Their full album cover of R.E.M.’s “Out of Time” flips the script on tracks like “Shiny Happy People,” reimagines classics like “Losing My Religion,” and transforms the cult classic “Country Feedback” into a gorgeous and stripped down piano ballad.
