Happy release day, Quirinello!
Finally the day has come: Quirinello’s debut album is out now!
Between daydreaming and nightwalking: With intimate bedroom pop, the Munich indie band Quirinello looks deep into the emotional world of Generation Z – from past friendships to melancholic self-reflection to the desire for dancing through the night.
It all started in the youth room of Quirin Müller, the singer and songwriter of Quirinello. In the quiet safety of his small attic apartment, inspired by indie bands such as Arctic Monkeys, MGMT and Tame Impala, songs emerged that told of adolescent shyness. A few years later – and three band members richer – musical thoughts between melancholy and frivolity still unfold between the bed and balcony of the now 25-year-old: authentic bedroom pop from Munich.
“The Sad-Boy-Dream-Pop wave around Mac DeMarco, Boy Pablo or Gus Dapperton has reached Bavaria and nobody rides it better than Quirinello.” (BR-PULS)
In reverb vocals and cloudy synths, Quirinello pack their pains and melancholy – providing the soundtrack for wistful coming-of-age stories. Whether young love, mental health, social media or loneliness: Quirin Müller (vocals & electric guitar), Svenja Nückel (synthesizer & vocals), Luca Dobroka (electric bass) and Yannik Hecher (drums) dare vulnerability in their songs – and a hopeful look ahead. In September 2022, the debut album of the Munich band will be released on AdP Records, which – how could it be otherwise – was mainly created in home recording, in addition to some studio sessions. And so, in Quirinello’s first longplayer, breathed dreaminess, catchy pop elements and psychedelic vibes meet nostalgic lo-fi aesthetics reminiscent of Bandcamp tapes of the late noughties.
This “beautifully dreamy sound” (Süddeutsche Zeitung) allows introverted nights as well as dancing lost in thought. On stage Quirinello’s songs unfold a new dynamic with colorful sound effects, bluesy rock elements and euphoric outbursts. This blend of throwback and festival vibes has earned the Munich natives a feature with New York pop phenom London O’Connor, as well as support slots for indie musicians Telquist and Shelter Boy. Next goal: touring Germany.
