I recently reviewed The Qwarks previous single Nice While It Lasted and I was eager to hear more but first let me tell you a bit about who the band are.
The Qwarks are a three-piece band from Brighton, and consists of Phil Johnstone on vocals, who effortlessly switches from a “narrative” style of singing to full on melodic harmonies, a sound that is reminiscent of the 60’s and 70’s, Simon Young on the bass, the funky basslines and tones being the underlying driving force behind the track, and Nick Flowers, whose energy on the drums is hard to miss.
Brunch At The End Of The World is their latest single and was release on 10/03/2023.
The band play a fusion of stoner rock, psychedelia and alternative rock, and have perfected a sound that is uniquely theirs.
This track is upbeat, with some funky guitars and bass lines and the drumming is laid back yet raw. The inclusion of some very psychedelic sounds and vocals near the end of the track provide a great contrast to the alternative rock stance of the rest of the song and this really keeps the listener on the4ir toes as it is totally unexpected.
The vocals are somewhat quirky, the singer swapping from very melodic singing during the choruses to something a bit more punky for the verses, and is accompanied by some great back ups vocals that really gives the track complexity.
Another really great track from the boys from Brighton and one that will, yet again, set them apart from anything else you have listened to recently!
