‘ISLAND’ THE NEW SINGLE FROM ‘QUIETYPE’ {NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS}


The feeling of isolation just before the end of a relationship, the growing divide that cripples your thoughts, the obsessive guilt as you fight to hold on. Despite your best efforts, you know the relationship is over. That is what the new single “Island” from Quietype is all about; reconciling that within yourself. One of the first songs they wrote as a group, “Island” remains a favourite off the forthcoming debut self-titled EP.

“This one was a really interesting song to tackle when it came to recording. There were so many layers, so many unique sounds and tones we wanted to incorporate. For us, it was mainly about finding the balance of incorporating all the sounds we had in our heads while still keeping the song subtle and clear.”

Quietype is a brutally honest depiction of a relationship that is slowly, quietly fracturing. It is an elegy to the joys of falling in love – and the pain of falling out of it.

“We hope that when you listen you have a visceral experience that replicates the emotions people feel in a troubled relationship. We want to take listeners on that emotional journey through our music, both lyrically and sonically.”
