It’s no secret that to make it as a band, you need to be wiling to adapt to whatever is popular in the mainstream. Even new independent bands seem to be adopting this revival of the classic quiet/loud formula that dominated the 90s. Although most of these bands have a solid live sound, they don’t translate it to the studio with any passion or energy. Queasy on the other hand are proving to be standing far out from the crowd and doing things their own way.
There are a lot of comparisons you could make with Queasy’s debut EP, for instance Jackdaw sounds like Red Hot Chili Peppers should today if they were actually able to write good songs while sober. The funk-rock roots are still strongly present from their single, Fed To The Wolves, but their style has broadened greatly across songs with some more alternative elements being implemented to add contrast to the incredible riffs being laid down.
There’s a lot to compliment with this EP; Quesy’s sound has become extremely refined since their first singles and the construction is spot on. Their style is full of character and the three songs on offer show the incredible breadth to their sound and abilities. Queasy are difficult to dislike with their song writing and delivery, as they have successfully captured the grandness that most bands can only pull off on the stage.
I can’t think of any reason for you to let this band slip by you with the powerful yet easy listening experience and a perfectly rounded sense of enjoyment that will pull you deep into their groove.
