Today we have a summer jam from the Australian outfit The Florets. “Quiet Life” is a product of the pandemic lockdowns, and this Melbourne five-piece constructs a catchy little melody with an angsty message. The track dropped last week and it’s the first single shared off their debut album Permanent Glow, which will be delivered in October.
This song hooks you and reels you in right away with the sun-soaked guitar strums. As a listener, you can feel the emotion through their delivery, raw and passionate. They land on a chill indie rock groovet, over which the lead singer lays down some yearning vocals, singing about leaving the busy city behind for a more serene experience.
This is what Nicholas Dawes had to say about the song…
‘Quiet Life’ follows the journey of a city dweller living in Melbourne during lockdown, longing for a lifestyle change. I grew up in regional NSW and moved to the city the moment I finished high school. There will always be a yearning to move somewhere with less hustle & bustle again & lockdown really emphasized the desire to move somewhere remote & tranquil.
