Although otherworldly in its textures, indie-pop group Quiet Kids new, self-titled EP is rooted firmly in the ties that bind. Family and friends serve as the bedrock to finding one’s voice, as Quiet Kids have done exactly that with their short player coming via Good Eye Records.
Formed in 2014 in McAllen, TX by songwriter Andy Peña with bassist Devin Garcia, the two started writing under the moniker once things started to settle with their previous group Dignan. They would then artfully craft a fuller sound recruiting keyboardist David Ramirez and drummer Adrian Loera. The band would then go on to earn support slots for luminaries such as Angel Olsen, Mitski, Miniature Tigers.
The music on the Quiet Kids EP mixes dreamy synths with smooth basslines and tight drums as melodic vocals touch on everyday themes.
Peña details, “People, places and things pull you in every direction, and it’s easy to please any and everyone. If we all just said what was on our minds we’d have much more of an understanding of who we are, and what we’re looking for… It’s only in the stability of my relationships that I realized I can write about whatever I feel. My art is me, and my family, and friends.”
