News: Quicksand Releases Newest Song “Feliz”

New York City natives Quicksand release their latest single “Feliz” fresh off their North American tour with Clutch and Helmet.

It follows slow burner “Giving The Past Away” released in August. Both songs were previously unreleased recordings from sessions for their well-received, 2021 album “Distant Population.”

“This one came together pretty easily, from what I recall coming off of tour we wanted to write something more aggressive for the set; listening now reminds me of something we might have written earlier in our career but still feels right at home with where we’re at currently,” front man Walter Schreifels explains.

A bass-heavy groove pulls the track, featuring electric guitar riffs with cranked up distortion. The song is expertly written with relatable lyrics.

“The lyrics speak to the fleeting nature of happiness which paradoxically is what makes feeling happy such a desirable thing,” explained Schreifels.

Formed in 1990, the post-hardcore band has been a scene staple for decades. Their 2017 release Interiors earned critical praise, redefining the bands trajectory. It appears Quicksand is building off that success, a reflection of their continuous staying power.
