Quivers’ life-damaged but hopeful jangle pop has returned with a long-anticipated second album, Golden Doubt.
After these strange few years of cancelled Australian and overseas tours (including their return to the US where they were due to again play for KEXP in Seattle), time and trouble have only sharpened this band's approach that guitar pop can be group therapy, but still a very good time.
Out June 11th on Spunk Records (and Ba Da Bing in the USA/Bobo Integral everywhere else), this album is full of the driving rhythms and harmony driven pop that comes most naturally to Quivers. Musically it plays with the ghosts of 80s Australian guitar bands and the spirit of R.E.M. and Teenage Fanclub, but with a lyrical directness not many bands commit to.
