Following on from the release of their Cardboard Sunset EP, Glasgow band Quiche are back with new single “Rat Habits”.
Produced by Catholic Action frontman Chris McCrory, the Psych Pop-Rock six-piece return with a song that you could picture yourself listening to in a 50’s American diner. The single’s cover, designed by Angus Fernie, brings that vision to life even further.
As the swaying beat at the start of the song leads you to believe that you’re set to listen to a Grease-like love song, frontman Juan Laforet’s lyrics kick in and gives an alternative twist to the tale.
Discussing his reclusive “narcotic haze”, Laforet sings of his agreement to part with an ex-lover; however he then states that everyone is aware that he can’t stop himself from going back, and is prone to regress and obsess over past decisions.
Although the lyrics are full of remorse, you can’t help but feel your toes tapping to the band’s signature dreamy sound that have entertained crowds up and down the country.
“Rat Habits” is now available through all streaming outlets, as well as on the group’s BandCamp page.
The next time you can catch the band is when they support Catholic Action at their rescheduled Saint Luke’s show on Friday 9th October. Medicine Cabinet, Humour and The Plastic Youth will also be performing and tickets are still available via the Gigs in Scotland website.
