London based twee-punks Qlowski released their first album in June 2021 (Maple Death Records and Feel it Records) with producer Lindsay A. Corstorphine (Sauna Youth, Cold Pumas, Middex).
They created a striking, full blown manifesto, where their early post-punk nuances are heightened by an extremely poetic and compelling vision that encapsulates words, imagery and noise.
Propulsive rhythms, a modern spin on kiwi-pop and a weird combination of dark punk, noise rock and flower pop are still the foundation of their sound but it’s the combination of bandleaders Mickey and Cecilia’s voices that creates an eerie effortless sense of familiarity. It’s no wonder they’ve known each other since they were young kids.
Qlowski are Michele Tellarini (IT, vocals, guitars), Cecilia Corapi (IT, vocals, keyboard), Danny Smartt (NI, bass, clarinet), Christian Billard (US, drums & percussions).
