THE INDIE ROOMS
Quinn - All The Best
I absolutely love it when bands send me new music. There is no better feeling than discovering a new song unheard of to the rest of the world. So when I was sent this single a few weeks ago I was understandably optimistic and from the first listen I loved this new electronic sound. Who exactly am I raving on about this week? I'm talking all about the indie-pop trio from Birmingham, Quinn. The band is led by singer-songwriter Sam Lambeth, who for this new single set himself out a few ground rules. The first being that he would be moving away from songs all about love (or the lack thereof) and he was done with dominant guitars, and lastly - that there were no rules! The outcome has not let us down, producing a confident, diverse, exciting new single called 'All The Best'.
From the off you can hear Quinn's trademark power pop sound, opening with catchy, toe-tapping guitar closely followed by the powerful percussion and finally, complimented by the sturdy bass. However, in this latest single Lambeth stuck to his word and it isn't all about dominant guitars and he has added a new synthesised sound, with electronic beats sprinkled throughout the song and unusual Sci-Fi sounds popping up here and there that help to progress this unique indie-pop tune!
So, what is this new single all about? Lambeth expresses how it represents their fun-filled past and their thunderous future, closing the book on one chapter while starting a fresh page. When asked what his aim for this new song was he replied “My aim was simple – Dinosaur Jr meets Carly Rae Jepsen,” and I suppose I have to say he's certainly given that a good go and come pretty close.
This is certainly a song made for summer with its sensational, soaring synths, needling keyboard lines and their trademark brand of hazy power pop. Similar to the likes of Two Door Cinema Club and The Wombats, bringing that same refreshing electronic rock, another superb single that you simply have to add to that feel-good summer playlist.
Having achieved success last year with their second EP 'Crush' and their single ‘Amanda Knocks’ receiving airplay on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and BBC WM Introducing. This latest single 'All The Best' is a great progression from their EP so surely only more success is heading their way.
Not only is this another great single but Quinn have treated us to another, self-described, "no budget" music video which is well worth checking out.
