Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to The Qwarks. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the uniqueness of their music.
The psychedelic and innovative sound of this band immediately struck me.
Surely we are faced with very eclectic musicians who are here to have fun and keep us entertained.
Their compositional style is avant-garde and the continuous rhythmic and melodic twists manage to keep you glued to the speakers from the first to the last second.
The Qwarks are a band that has recently formed but you feel that the members of the band have a great compositional experience behind them as it is not easy to play with so many elements and nuances and make them coexist in such a coherent way.
This band has decided to follow their instinct and offer innovative music. The Qwarks are brave enough to venture on a path never walked before.
If you want to hear something strangely fascinated, hit the play button and go and listen to them.
You Are Not Fans (You Are Our Friends) is The Qwarks Single Out Now!
Catchy and Unique!
Conceived at the apogee of the ‘Before-Time’ (February 2020) The Qwarks dived from the harbour wall of certainty into the incandescent waters of unreason with new-minted fins & gills, swimming wildly for the horizon of promise.
Over the years they have played gigs and festivals from Craigentinny to New York, just not with each other, but now that’s changed. The Qwarks have garnered fans and admirers from around the global psych-rock-proto-punk-ready-salted community/pigeonhole, and helped hone their style into a dangerous weapon, gleaming and ready for the stage.
Socially distanced, and distanced from society, they recorded their debut album over the last year. Covering universal human themes (bondage, monkeys, chairs, The Pope etc etc), and played with an aplomb bordering on actual desperation, the album, ‘The Qwarks are Cancelled’ was knackered together and released on 21st August 2021.
The Qwarks, hail from Brighton and try and survive as best they can amidst an increasingly out of control mix of unaffordable housing, vape shops and yoga studios. They have been described as a “rock feast”, with songs that are “funny and well played”, and lyrics that read like “a groupies memoir gone wrong”. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
