KUTX Artist of the Month
Every month we turn the spotlight on a new release from a Texas artist with a series of weekly features that give you a sneak peek at the new music and some insight into the artist behind it.
Our March Artist of the Month here at KUTX is Austin indie band Quiet Company. Last month Quiet Company released their fourth studio album, Transgressor, which was recorded over a two week period at Orb Recording Studios.
Local band Quiet Company has been on the receiving end of numerous accolades and critical acclaim, including Austin Music Awards and winning Best Rock Band at SXSW 2014. The band has been steadily expanding their audience since they formed in 2005, and their sound has been described as a combination of the Beatles, Death Cab for Cutie, Arcade Fire, and Weezer. Although a nod to the rich indie rock of the early 2000’s remains a constant in their music, Quiet Company’s sound streches into the realm of melodic pop. The group’s songs boast a full and powerful backdrop, laden with warm keys, vibrant guitars, and sweeping strings, while remaining lyrically honest and powerful.
Be sure to check out Quiet Company here:
