Bio

Quivers make lyric-driven guitar pop with four distinct male and female voices. It is pop that draws upon chime-y 1980s jangle but lives in the present. Started by Sam Nicholson in Hobart, Tasmania, the now Melbourne band has since toured Australia, NZ, Canada and most recently the USA where they showcased at SXSW '19 and then filmed a session for KEXP in Seattle. They are touring new single "When It Breaks" all over Australia in November.

Late contender for guitar line of the year. Cracking chorus too. Another triumph for Team Quivers and for power-pop in general.

What a sweet track! Delivered at an easy pace that feels so sincere. Sad, but it feels like Quivers are helping you right through it with one gigantic hug.
