Quicksand Return with New Song "Inversion"
Their first material in three years is produced by Will Yip
Published Apr 13, 2021Quicksand have returned with a new song, marking their first new material in three years. You can hear "Inversion" alongside an animated video below.
"The music to 'Inversion' was very squatter punk at first," frontman Walter Schreifels explained in a statement. "To get something going vocally I started singing in an English Niel 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."
The video accompanying "Inversion" features illustrations by Japanese artist Tetsunori Tawaraya and animation by Rob Fidel. Tawaraya also provided the single's cover art, found above.
"Inversion" is the first new music from Quicksand since 2017 full-length Interiors and 2018 EP Triptych Continuum. Like both of those efforts, the single was produced by Will Yip.
