New single from QTY

QTYQTY (New York duo Dan Lardner and Alex Niemetz) today release their debut and you can find it both online and as a 7″ single via Dirty Hit.

The Bernard Butler-produced A-side, “Rodeo” has an energetic and vital air, with that effortlessly cool vibe of early Dandy Warhol’s. Dan’s vocals often recall Julian Casablancas and they perfectly complement the buzzy, classic glam-rock guitars beneath them.

“World Breaker” is a slower number with a beginning reminiscent of Bowie’s “Five Years”.  It has piano chords at the heart of it under some well-placed growling guitar.  There’s more of a presence from the vocals of Alex here providing a more male-female vibe giving it an alt-country feel in places, rather like a mash up of Magnetic Fields and Camera Obscura.

As a lover of music, cats and chocolate it was inevitable that Paul would end up writing for us. A tireless singer/songwriter from the UK with a tiresome number of music projects, his worrying knowledge of the 80s and the evolution of crisps and confectionery (or chips and candy for our US readers) has seen him both gain jobs and lose friends.
