QTY releases debut LP, embarks on headline tour, plays Irving Plaza on 10/28

QTY releases debut LP, embarks on headline tour, plays Irving Plaza on 10/28

NYC rock duo QTY shares their latest single ‘Michael’ in advance of an October-November headline tour and releases of self-titled debut album on 11/3.  Produced by Bernard Butler of iconic 90’s Britpop band Suede, the album promises an excess-free listening experience full of hooks and charming character.  The single (streaming below) delivers that with a thoroughly catchy chorus “that’s how it goes.  You’re alright until you’re sweating chemicals.”  Clever lyrics are woven throughout, with one verse stating “I miss the stresses of being strung out a couple months - now all my stress is from what somebody else wants.”  Deep voiced and conversational, singer Dan Lardner channels Lou Reed’s style, while cohort Alex Niemetz adds female harmonies and essential guitar licks.  The band's album will be released on Dirty Hit records, and will be supported by a tour starting on 10/11. The NYC stop will be on October 28 stop at Irving Plaza.  - Dave Cromwell
