Quicksand have premiered a new song titled “Missile Command.” This track is from the band’s new album “Distant Populations,” which will be released on August 13 (vinyl out September 24).

Walter Schreifels said the following about the new song:

“It really kind of focuses on Sergio’s [Vega] whole motif in a very simple way. He and Alan [Cage] just have this really kind of trademark groove, and I think that really sings on this one to me. I just felt like it’s a kind of song that is very us, but we hadn’t written it yet.”

He also added the following about the new album:

“Everyone is on the one hand so connected with each other, and on the other hand, is so far apart. We’re checking out each other’s social media and we know what everybody’s doing. But when we’re sitting in the same room together, we’re looking at our phones.”

Quicksand Premiere New Song “Inversion”

Quicksand have premiered a new song titled “Inversion.“ Walter Schreifels commented:

“The music to ‘Inversion‘ was very squatter punk at first. To get something going vocally I started singing in an English Neil Nausea kind of vibe (Nausea are a peace/squatter punk band from the Lower East Side of Manhattan). The lyrics reflect the push and pull of being very connected through technology while at the same time being the most emotionally isolated group of humans to ever walk the planet and fun stuff like that.”
