Late night ruminations under the streetlights. A silent moment of heartbreak on the drive home. Fights that are whispered, not screamed. These are the moments that inspire the sounds of Toronto-based trio quietype. Like the relationships they reflect, their music is at once both intimate and epic. Vulnerable yet explosive. As likely to draw from Kings of Leon as Bon Iver, quietype blends soulful R&B melodies with rock sensibilities and hypnotic electronic textures. The result is both familiar and unpredictable.
Dark, moody verses crescendo into raucous chorus grooves, electric guitars collide with dynamic synth lines, and programmed trap drums jitter around cavernous rock beats. These sounds coalesce on their forthcoming debut self-titled EP – 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.
A smooth, R&B inspired take on Bon Iver’s Hey Ma, live off the floor at 660 Studios.
