We didn’t grow up listening (or really understanding) this form of music…Joy Division didn’t connect with us when we were growing up. But now as grown-ass adults with decades of stress, anxiety, excitement, marriages, children, friendships formed, friendships broken…basically a plethora of life experiences – music like Malaysian post-punk/darkwave band Quarter Life always resonates so well.
The track comes off the band’s upcoming 3-way split to be released in April. According to the band, “This is us getting back to our roots which is reverb-ish and gritty sounding post-punk. Through this, we’re hoping to remind you of 80’s bands like The Chameleon, Flock Of Seagull, and Billy Idol.”
