Quivers make cathartic guitar pop that jangles and shimmers somewhere between 1980s Australia and 1990s America. Championing our favourite up-and-coming artists has always been the foundation of Turntable Kitchen. Over the course of more than 100 releases, we’ve released debut wax from bands like MØ, Arlo Parks, No Vacation, Gallant, Tei Shi, Cathedrals, The Record Company, Crumb, Tender, and so so many more incredible rising bands.

Rising Melbourne-based Quivers captured the attention late last year with a pair of incredibly catchy, captivating singles: “You’re Not Always On My Mind” and “When It Breaks.” Fully formed and with a knack for easy, upbeat song writing, we immediately knew they were something special. In fact, we’ve been “all in” on them since that first listen. Back in January we were honoured to release their first ever vinyl single (sold out) and now we’re proud to share their contribution to our SOUNDS DELICIOUS series.

They selected R.E.M.’s “Out of Time” for their contribution to the series, flipping the script on tracks like “Shiny Happy People” (a sprawling psychedelic vibe here); shedding off some of the jangle to reimagine classics like “Losing My Religion” and transforming the cult classic “Country Feedback” into a gorgeous and stripped down piano ballad. 

Quivers’ version of “Out of Time” is only available by subscribing to the SOUNDS DELICIOUS vinyl record club.

Quivers got to choose a ‘classic’ to cover for Turntable Kitchen’s Sounds Delicious vinyl series and selected R.E.M.’s Out of Time (1991) Album. We hope you like our re-imagining of the record and we hope Mike Mills doesn’t sue us (I had a dream he would, twice).

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.

At times, Quivers‘ songs seem to emanate from the best college radio station of the 1980s: Sam Nicholson’s songs swoon and jangle with sounds of The Chills, The Go-Betweens and a dozen other Australasian bands in that vein, not to mention the radiant echoes of The Kinks. Nicholson wrote Quivers‘ new album, We’ll Go Riding on the Hearses, in the aftermath of his brother’s death. But he channels his grief into brightly rendered songs like “You’re Not Always on My Mind,” which exudes a cocktail of nostalgia and celebration.

The debut album from Quivers, “We’ll Go Riding On The Hearses”, is an album about road-trips with ghosts, loss, memories and hard-fought optimism. Originally released on hand-made cassette tapes, this album crept under my skin and made itself comfortable – this is half the reason I had to start a record label, in order to help share this with more people. I’m proud to re-release this record on 12″ vinyl, as the very first LP on the Hotel Motel imprint.
