QUIVERS - Oyster Cuts Album Launch 
Sunday 3rd November 2024 

w/ special guests 

Quivers, of Melbourne / Naarm, have a third release of cathartic jangle-damaged pop, Oyster Cuts, coming out via beloved US label Merge Records and more Australian (and international) dates than ever to celebrate! The road to this moment has been a winding one, the best kind, with a performance for KEXP, US and Australian tours, and even R.E.M. sliding into the band’s DMs with fire emojis after their full cover of the band’s Out of Time. This new album is propelled by melodies that recall Galaxie 500 and The Pretenders, with both Sam and now Bella taking lead vocals and group vocals from everyone. It’s sunshine pop with blood in the water, with tape loops that circle like sharks, and twin guitars that glisten while the bass and drums roll in like waves. Pitchfork described Quivers' last record as “the sound of bedsit 1980s college-rock thrust into the big-tent environs of 21st-century indie, like a Go-Betweens with Coachella-conquering ambitions….and it’s absolutely glorious”, but Quivers only believe in a ragged glory, that live music should sometimes fall apart and be a genuine interaction with each audience. So they will continue to confront love and grief and the glow of friendship from all angles, and hope to meet you on the next winding road ahead.

“It’s the sound of bedsit 1980s college-rock thrust into the big-tent environs of 21st-century indie, like a Go-Betweens with Coachella-conquering ambitions or a Smiths with greater pub sing-along appeal. And it’s absolutely glorious.” - Pitchfork

“Quietly spectacular”  - Brooklyn Vegan

“Those big, heart-filling harmonies are a highlight of the record. As are the chiming, jangling guitars that call to mind the classic, timeless guitar pop and college rock of artists like Big Star, R.E.M. and The Go-Betweens. But it's Nicholson's rich songwriting that ultimately makes Golden Doubt so captivating.” - Zan Rowe 

“Classic Antipodean Indie Pop, 9/10” - Backseat Mafia 

“...one of the best songs I’ve heard in years... that song reminded me this is why we do this. I listened to it like a weirdo, like 8 times in a row.” - John Richards, KEXP.
