QUIVERS – ” We’ll Go Riding on the Hearses “

Posted: December 23, 2021 in MUSIC

“We’ll Go Riding on the Hearses” (2018) was first a handmade tape release before being released on vinyl. It’s an album of songs written after singer Sam lost his brother, Tom, unexpectedly in a free-diving accident. It’s maybe an album about that, but also about trying to not think about that, and often comes back to ghosts, benders, water, and pissing in the snow. The album was recorded halfway up Mount Wellington/kunanyi by Anthony Rochester in just two days to not overthink it all, and celebrates the catharsis that comes from singing with friends. All my best friends are a little broken, all the best people are.–

“Pigeons” is a perfect pop song. Am in love with this sound which invokes so many bands of my youth – The Farm, Kitchens of Distinction, The Dream Academy – but transcends them and seeks the same wisdom and joy on their own unique path

Recorded in Hobart, Tasmania, by Anthony Rochester.

Released May 22nd, 2018
