THE MUSIC FILES FAVOURITE TRACK: GO. Their latest track begins at a slower pace to their usual rockier vibe and then all of sudden the crescendo of the chorus erupts with a blend of heavy guitar riffs and rapid drums that we all know and love… The track itself relates to getting away and starting again making it the ideal track to listen to when you’ve had a bad day and want to just block reality out… to be honest most of Quorum’s music are perfect for that. It’s not just the lyrics I love about the track but the music as well. It really shows the high quality of the band’s talents. We recommend you have a listen to GO with the volume turned up FULL BLAST to really get the full benefit!
WHY ARE WE DIGGIN THEM? Quorum’s music takes listeners on a journey … each track as it’s own personal meaning that we can take away with us. They’ve got this fresh, energetic, addictive sound about them that makes them stand out from just another punk rock band… we can’t wait to see what else the four piece have in store for us over the next year!
THE MUSIC FILES FAVOURITE LYRICS: Headstrong: ‘I said let’s go out and we’ll get drunk love and she said but we do that everyday, I say so what do you want then? She said maybe you should change your ways’
