Qtier – Still

qtiersml

If, like me, you thought that Bad Life Records was only for the noisy things in life (like Attaque and Autokratz), this might come as a bit of a surprise. This two-tracker is definitely on the downtempo side. A bit indie. Vocals and everything. There’s guitar and soft electronics. A bit fey perhaps but a fragile start for those for whom, like me, Monday has come too soon.

Blurb: We first heard of them when whispers filtered through the Bad Life office of a mesmerising performance at their first ever gig in the front room of their flat only last month. It was just a matter of weeks after they had written Still, played it to a few people and quit their jobs knowing that this was serious. Our intern regaled tales of an extraordinary, electric atmosphere; a group of friends knowing they were witnessing the start of something very special. The next day the band emptied the flat and set up a studio by the coast. The Still EP is the first offering from the London-based trio and it has completely blown us away. The noise they make is a breathtaking marriage of Adam’s tender, hushed vocal, lush swooning textures and Howard’s forward thinking electronics. It’s not taken long to get people as excited as we are, with the lead track becoming Fly Magazine’s Track of The Day last week. A new band for a new year, and a massive tip from us for 2013. We couldn’t help but completely fall in love with Qtier.
