500

by Quickie

Released 2015
Everyday Einstein
Released 2015
Everyday Einstein
Quickie reinvents itself and creates 500, the bands most sonically ambitious album to date with an emphasis on harmony, raw lyrics, layered structure, keyboard building crescendos, shredding riffs wrapped in tight-knit catchy songs with standout melodies.
NOTES
Newsflash: Quickie have found their heart. And it’s broken.

Over the years this power-trio has evolved from cynical post-modern New Wave act to aggressive, smart-ass punk band. “500” finds the boys at their most introspective and vulnerable. And that’s a good thing.

Released 2013

A musical tackle box filled with intense harmonic vocals, melodic retro keyboards, driving guitars, wicked beats and lots of hooks. If you like Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, Neon Trees and The Strokes you will add Quickie to your playlist.
NOTES
Dropping the Why is the break through first full length CD for Seattle trio Quickie. Quickie does its best to distill the most defining elements of the 80's punk/new wave. The single "Chameleon" roars out of the gate with manic wah driven guitar attack. Just when you think the tune will be a little more than a din of suburban metal, the verse -- driven by a sledgehammer drum groove -- breaks into a …

Feels Like the Third Time

Thunderous beats with wah-licious guitar riffs reminiscent of early Bowie sprickled with the lyrical swagger of the Replacements and the attitude of the Buzzcocks. This is the first "EP" release for the Seattle trio Quickie also called "The Black Album".
NOTES
"Feels like the third time" also known as "the Black Album" was the first release from Seattle trio Quickie. This the beginning of Quickie. The sound was fresh and familiar a fusion of punk rock and 80's synth pop. The drums are thundering and tribal. The guitars are reminiscent of early Bowie with an original and distinct wah-licious riffing sound. The vocals and lyrics are clever full of emotional, social and political casualties with hints …
