Sam, Bella, Michael and Holly are Quivers, a band which make cathartic guitar pop that jangles and shimmers somewhere between 1980s Australia and 1990s America and somehow sound like the present. Started in Hobart before moving to Melbourne, the band first toured their life-damaged but hopeful debut, We'll Go Riding on the Hearses (Hotel Motel Records) around Australia, Canada and NZ. It lyrically deals with love and loss after losing a brother in a free-diving accident. It found its way to NPR’ Music's cult-favourite All Songs Considered who said it “turned an unimaginable tragedy into a celebration of spirit that ranks among the year's better rock albums”. NPR named Quivers a Slingshot Best Emerging Artist and put next single ‘You’re Not Always On My Mind” on their Austin 100 SXSW preview. KEXP’s John Richards described it as one of the best he’d heard “in years” and invited the band to perform a filmed live session in their studio. The song went on to be his most played song of 2019. All this helped Quivers’ 2019 trip to SXSW be a really good time. It also led Seattle label Turntable Kitchen to commission the band to record a song by song re-imagining of REM’s Out of Time album, which came out in October 2020.
