We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Qui’s new song “Escape From Now” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s album Snuh, which is scheduled to be released on August 3, 2018 through Three One G Records.
Snuh will be available digitally on iTunes, as well as physically through Three One G Records on 100 pink and 200 black 180 gram vinyl. Free CD will be included with vinyl purchase. You can purchase the album here.
Matt Cronk of Qui commented on the song:
‘Escape From Now’ is about aging and living with a mercurial stock market. The slow, plodding A section, along with the delicate B section represent a more reasonably paced Dow Jones fluctuation. The final, fast section is meant to replicate the abrupt spikes and drops in the stock market caused by recent economic uncertainty.
About the band:
Made up of vocalist/guitarist Matt Cronk and drummer/vocalist/keyboardist Paul Christensen (also of Hepa.Titus), LA-based Qui is a two-man band whose music manages to span a vast and eclectic range of styles from jazz to noise to classic rock to punk, with an air of absurdity ever-present.
Known for their live antics and beloved for their iconoclasm and refusal to settle into any one scene, the pair are friends of/have played with The Melvins, Marnie Stern, Sebadoh, Head Wound City, Red Fang, Retox, Gay Witch Abortion, and Zu, to name a handful. Their peculiar musical approach was enough to enlist David Yow (of The Jesus Lizard, Scratch Acid) as a past member of the band, who still collaborates with and supports them today.
Snuh has no shortage of heavy-hitting collaborations either, featuring cameo performances from Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox, Head Wound City, Dead Cross), Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Fantomas, Melvins, John Zorn), Dale Crover (Melvins) and Adam Harding (Dumb Numbers).
August 3 – Los Angeles, CA at The Echo w/ Retox
