COMETS AND CARTWHEELS

Quickbeam are an atmospheric/cinematic band based in Glasgow, Scotland. Originally formed in 2010 by Monika Gromek and Andrew Thomson, the band has since grown in numbers to a four piece. After releasing their first single ‘Seven Hundred Birds’ to widespread critical acclaim in April 2012, the band now look forward to further collaboration with Scottish label Comets and Cartwheels on the release of their Creative Scotland funded debut album in June 2013.

The resulting collection of songs reveals more of what Quickbeam have to offer in the studio, and saw them find a well-suited collaborator in Scottish producer Stuart MacLeod. Part sparse minimalism and part luscious extravagance, the record is a confident showcase of the members’ growing maturity as songwriters. Consistently underpinned by orchestrally arranged strings, brass, and rich harmonium pitted against thunderously distorted guitar passages and pounding rhythms, the album’s overall feel is one that calls to mind grand themes such as the passage of time. Throughout the record, female led vocals are complemented by warm harmonies and subtle atmospherics which lend the music a rather captivating and often melancholic beauty.
