Post hardcore icons QUICKSAND have released a new track, marking their first new music in three years. “Inversion” is a follow up to the band’s comeback album Interiors (2017) and comes with a cool new music video featuring artwork by Japanese artist Tetsunori Tawaraya, animated by Los Angeles-based artist Rob Fidel.
Walter Schreifels comments: “The music to ‘Inversion‘ as 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.”
Distant populations going nowhere
So far away from us, you wouldn’t know where
Opposite of you, opposite of me
Generations leveled and taken by the sea
10 thousand saints who haven’t got a chance
Invisible people in a sacred expanse
What is it with you? What is it with me?
Distant populations you never even see
Out of sight, out of mind
Willingly blind Inversion
So far away from us
