"Apparition" by Quivers

We like all the music we feature here, but we have favorites. It is human nature. And one of those favorites is Melbourne's fantastic Quivers. They create terrific pop music, put on a great live show, and are nice people. 

Earlier today Quivers let us know that they have signed to Merge Records and will release new album Oyster Cuts on August 9. We would be thrilled if the new album matched the highs of their previous Golden Doubt, but based on the first single -- "Apparition" -- we dare dream that it will surpass their debut. It is bold, bright and confident with crunchy guitars and a buoyant chorus. This album is going to be so, so good!

As we mentioned, Quivers are a good live show and they have an ambitious tour schedule beginning in June. The dates and venues are at the bottom of this post.
