"Premiere: Hobart Guitar Pop Outfit Quivers Release Their Sentimental Debut Video ‘Pigeons’"

‘Pigeons’ is the debut video from Tassie guitar-pop outfit Quivers, who until now have remained hidden away in Hobart, their recordings only being heard on homemade cassettes.
The track is taken from the four-piece’s debut record We’ll Go Riding On The Hearses, written as a means of working through the grief of losing a friend and a brother. Appropriately enough, their sound is a hungover blend of lingering sadness and undeniable optimism, a perfect pairing for a sentimental B&W clip.
Quivers are playing a solid run of shows throughout the rest of the year that kicked off last week with the likes of Neighbourhood Youth and Apes on the bill, and continues on in their hometown Sep 10. The album, which has so far only been released on Bandcamp and through a very limited run of lovingly-crafted cassette tapes, will see a wider release early next year on Melbourne label Pink Lake Records. - Tone Deaf


"Quivers - Pigeons"

We can hear Quivers oscillating through our music channels today. The skilled guitar pop band from Hobart, Australia (a bunch of mates you can find on facebook all about) has captured my ears via the indie noir "Pigeons" video. This first single comes off the handmade cassettes on bandcamp (different artworks to suit your quirky style). "We'll Go Riding on the Hearses" is waiting for your love and support before the band's vinyl release and 2017 tours. The video kicks off with an image from "Mykonos Takeaway" and just as I'm thinking where the heck is this place caring for a midnight music snack, the song creeps on me and I'm swaying in my chair playing the melody with my pencils on the desk. It's jangling pop for sure, that doesn't ignore the big issues like death (Sam lost his brother, Tom, in a freediving accident 4 years ago), however it's a cracked, hung-over realization with an optimism to suit your melancholy. I could love these guys right up with the War on Drugs or Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. If your looking to go road tripping with your ghosts, pissing in the snow (haven't tried it in the Blue Mountains?), swimming in the phosphorescence and benders with your friends or falling in love in the gutter again you've got a soundtrack to get drunk to on your grey nights that will color your memories for all your life. Even Courtney Barnett stated that there is a "handsome voice" with "great lyrics" in the air about this band, and we completely give out our carte blanche on this one! - Give it a spin (blog).


"Quivers - Pigeons"

Quivers have just released their first single Pigeons. Hailing from Hobart, but recently moving to Melbourne, the band features Sam J Nicholson who has spent time in fellow Tasmanian band Tiger Choir. Where Tiger Choir dealt in synth based pop, Quivers tread closer to jangly guitars and shoegaze melodies. An outstanding debut track that is sure to leave you wanting more. - City & Sound


"New Music - Quivers - Pigeons"

Originally hailing from Hobart Tasmania, Quivers are now based in Melbourne and have a new cassette/download album out called We’ll Go Riding on the Hearses. Their bio name-checks Townes Van Zandt, Neil Young, The Triffids, The Chills, Twerps and Courtney Barnett which is a mighty fine barrel of sounds from which to draw from in our opinion. On the first single Pigeons they nail a swaying melancholic jangle, all bittersweet and wistful. A great first taste of the album. “All my best friends are a little broken, all the best people are.” -

Bio

Quivers make songs
for road trips with ghosts. Their handmade cassette, ‘We’ll Go Riding on the Hearses’, was recorded halfway up Tasmania’s
Mount Wellington and is all harmony, jangle, shouted choruses, and hard-fought
optimism. The album was written while living in Hobart and Beijing
partly as a way to deal with grief at losing a brother who drowned
free-diving. The songs and sound of Quivers are just how it came out, but
some things that get stuck in our car stereos include early-REM, The
Triffids, The Replacements, Magnolia Electric Co., Angel Olsen, Twerps, &
The Chills
