Bio

Quiet as a Mouse are an indie/alternative band formed by singer/songwriter Alex Moran in 2012.

The
group’s live reputation has quickly grown as QAAM have supported Hinds
(Deers), The Orwells, Palma Violets, Coasts and The Crookes. Their first
batch of London shows were with Club Fandango at Bull & Gate &
Buffalo Bar as well as headlining Birthdays and The Old Blue Last.

These
outstanding performances have earned them “Gig of the Day” from Ruth
Kilpatrick at Amazing Radio, airplay support from Tom Robinson (BBC 6
Music), Vic Galloway (BBC Radio Scotland), Chris Martin, Charlie
Ashcroft and Jim Gellaty at Amazing Radio.

On the back of the free
download track ‘An Accident Waiting To Happen (Awoo Woo Woo)’ the band
released their debut single ‘Home Is The Hardest Place To Find’ in
August 2013.

Quiet as a Mouse released their next single
‘Casketcase’ in February 2014. ‘Casketcase’ like ‘Home Is The Hardest
Place To Find’ was produced by Marcus Mackay (Frightened Rabbit &
Snow Patrol) and mastered by Chris Potter (Arctic Monkeys).

In
August 2014 QAAM released their debut EP ‘British Flag’ which was
engineered and mixed by Liam Watson (The White Stripes ‘Elephant’) at
Toerag Studios (Metronomy, Tame Impala & The Wytches) in London and
mastered by Noel Summerville (The Clash & Aphex Twin).

The band released their 2nd EP ‘Memorybox’ in April 2015, which coincided with launch shows in Edinburgh, Glasgow & London.

Quiet as a Mouse are currently writing and recording their debut album due for release in 2016.

The
Daily Record called Alex “a genius and a prophet” and said of the
‘British Flag’ EP “like The Smiths, Orange Juice and Brian Jonestown
Massacre; its knowing, fragile and indie-tastic.” They also mention
QAAM's first single ‘An Accident Waiting To Happen (Awoo Woo Woo)’
calling it “one of the best songs they have heard in over ten years.”

"Quiet
as a Mouse are no strangers to the BBC Introducing Mixtape. We featured
their free download track An Accident Waiting To Happen (Awoo Woo Woo)
in February and the single Casketcase in June. Despite alarm bells
ringing from the word “Christmas” in the title, this track comes from
their splendid debut EP British Flag which was actually released in
August. In any case, the groove and performance on this track are simply
irresistible – the band’s strongest work to date. Roll on 2015." Tom
Robinson BBC 6 Music

"Quiet as a Mouse are fast becoming one of
Scotland's hottest prospects...'Home Is The Hardest Place To Find' is a
soaring anthem packed full of melody...it reminds me of Snow Patrol's
edgier moments." The Sun

“They’re picking up a wee buzz about themselves.” Vic Galloway BBC Radio Scotland

"This (QAAM upcoming 2nd EP) is the indie genre churning out one of its finer offerings of the past few years." The Metro

"Some
bands don't even achieve such a great track as ‘An Accident Waiting To
Happen (Awoo Woo Woo)' let alone give it away for free. It's a contender
for Scottish single of the year." The Daily Record

"There is
enough in Alex Moran’s band’s armoury to sink a battleship…New single
Casketcase is a heady mix of Weezer and Nirvana, its Goth for the new
millennium…I love this band." The Daily Record

'Home Is The
Hardest Place To Find' was selected by The Herald's Martin Williams as
the 51st best song of 2013 and 27th best Scottish song of 2013 calling
it "Majestic offkilter alterno-indie."

"Inspired in part by the
shimmer of Teenage Fanclub and the heaviness of Nirvana. This blend
seems to have won them a few admirers, mohawk-haired Scottish music
impresario Jim Gellatly among them." Edinburgh Evening News
