Grand Rapids’ The Quirk has released a brand new single entitled “Bisque.” The song was first written in 2017 and was played live years before the band recorded it.
The band noted:
We had an amazing year in 2019 touring but followed that was a long pause during covid – being immune compromised and covid unfortunately didn’t mix well . We had a lineup change adding in Jen Tonon on drums and Jon Moody on bass so we headed back into Cold War studios Fall of 2022.
Vocalist/Guitarist Bek Graham added the following about the new release:
“This song has always been deeply personal. I wrote it when I was extremely angry at someone who was abusive to me in my teenage years when I was first starting out as a musician. I’ve gotten a lot of therapy since I wrote the lyrics for this song, but I wanted to honor my younger self’s experience and all of the angst that came with that chapter of my life. Now, I’m just grateful to have moved forward , and that I’m still doing what I love and shredding on the guitar!”
The band will be playing a single release show on March 18th at the DAAC in Grand Rapids. If you’re not aware of the DAAC yet, read up because it’s super rad. The show is a benefit show to raise money for the band’s friend Amy’s bottom surgery. The lineup currently features The Quirk, She her her’s, and Charlie Darling, with additions to be announced at a later date.
