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.
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. Half men and women, everyone-singing, there is grit and spit and community in their live shows. The chorus of Pigeons feels good to shout, "All my best friends are a little broken, all the best people are".
Newest single "You're Not Always On My Mind" has been getting some nice international support (KEXP/NPR) and is a song that commits to being a pop song - taking the band deeper down the rabbithole of lyric-heavy chiming guitar-pop.
