LITTLE QUIRKS - COVER MY EYES
Massively energised by the reaction to their shows in 2019, Little Quirks are thrilled to release their debut EP ‘Cover My Eyes’.
Recorded at Hercules Studios, the band worked with Producer, Wayne Connolly on the EP, who has a faultless indie pedigree, but who Little Quirks particularly appreciated for his work on alt-folk and country acts such All Our Exes Live in Texas and Boy & Bear. The brief was to bring some exhilarating pop and indie to their delicate folk side.
Like siblings First Aid Kit, Little Quirks have an almost psychic ability to blend their voices. It is easy to imagine their musical upbringing with everyone playing an instrument (or a few), and the influences of their parents' collection which is now met with a feisty new folk sound that bursts with energy in a live setting – think the bounding exuberance and stagecraft of Mumford & Sons.
The EP comes with news that this talented family will be doing what they love best and hitting the road for another East Coast tour. The band kicks off in their hometown area of Wyong on Saturday, February 8, followed by two shows in Sydney, Castlemaine, Melbourne, Gosford, Newcastle, before wrapping up in Canberra for the National Folk Festival and Scotts Heads Festival in April.
Having previously supported The Teskey Brothers, Busby Marou, Jack River, Xavier Rudd and Alex The Astronaut there’s no doubt Little Quirks are becoming one of Australia's hardest working young live acts.
Cover My Eyes is out now through Ditto Music.
