Meet another one of our talented new writers, Krista De La Rosa!
Never before have I ever listened to a 15-album track and felt a rush of emotion within each track. From the classic chills running through the body to the unconscious clapping of the hands to the beat, Quiet Company has accomplished one of the most beautiful, harmonic sounds that have ever graced Texas. Quiet Company lives to their title and has various “company” singing throughout their entire album. From friends to the leader singer’s wife, their melodic voices make this album a refreshing indie sensation. Their sound is much like The New Frontiers meeting Ben Gibbard at the local cafe, but what is so special about QC is how they have their own unique sound that will swoon all listeners within their first track. You can hear the passion QC has to offer within each track and that is the most beautiful part about listening and writing about their music. Instruments ranging from the organ to the glockenspiel to the harmonica, QC embedded every instrument every so smoothly into this album. The one thing I loved most about this album was the title of each track. Track #2, “It’s Better to Spend Money Like There’s No Tomorrow Than Spend Tonight Like There’s No Money,” is the one-track title I love the most. Such a long title with a catchy meaning gets even better: The actual song, itself, is as great as the combination of the two. This Austin, Texas band is one to remember, for they only have a great career ahead of themselves with such a talented and passionate sound.
I am not one to graciously give an album review 100%, but this album really got the best of me the second I pushed play on my iTunes. This album is going down as one of my most favorable albums. Do your ears a favor and buy ‘Everyone You Love Will Be Happy Soon’ album on their personal web page . You will not regret it, I promise. I rarely ever make promises, so trust me on this.
