Like splashing colors on canvas, Quarters Of Change combine sounds and vibes in fits of emotion. Anchored by a mutual predisposition for unpredictability, they fuse together a signature hybrid of nineties-style alternative hooks, crunchy space rock soundscapes, and strutting seventies grooves. After piling up millions of streams, selling out shows, and inciting critical applause, the New York City quartet-Ben Acker [guitar, bass, synths], Attila Anrather [drums], Jasper Harris [guitars, bass, synths], and Ben Roter [vocals, guitar]-craft a rich exhibition of emotion on their aptly titled 2023 second full-length offering, Portraits [300 Entertainment]. "The album is made up of individualized fragments that provide different perspectives and create their own little vignettes," says Roter. "I think of each fragment as a portrait, reflecting a separate emotion or moment. Overall, it explores themes of addiction, isolation, and exploration. At the time, I was definitely writing about the present. By discussing what was happening in our lives, we're giving you honest everyday circumstances to latch onto." The group have always bottled the urgency of life-in-motion by writing and recording in a room together face-to-face. They quietly broke through with a series of independent EPs and the fan favorite "Kiwi," which cracked 10 million-plus streams and counting. In 2022, the guys picked up the pace on their full-length debut, Into The Rift, boasting "T Love," "Jaded," and "Dead." They hit the road with Bad Suns and impressively sold out their first-ever US headline tour. Earning tastemaker praise, The Aquarian hailed them as "reviving alt rock," and Sheesh professed, "Quarters of Change has mastered the New York rock resurgence in a way that is resonating with even the best of the best." Not to mention, they enamored notable fans such as Joe Jonas, Lewis Capaldi, Chad Smith, and Fred Durst, to name a few. Nevertheless, the musicians opted to shake up the creative process. Decamping to a house in Woodstock, NY for two weeks during early 2023, they collectively established the foundation for what would become the LP. 1. What I Wanted 2. Depression II 3. Heaven Bound 4. Turn It Away 5. Tightrope 6. Cherry Tree 7. Do or Die 8. Time Befoe Mourning 9. Hollywood Baby 10. Illogical Decisions 11. Keep My Blood.
