New York post-hardcore vets Quicksand have shared a new song, Inversion.

The track is the first new music from Walter Schreifels’ band since 2018’s Triptych Continuum EP. 

“The music to Inversion was very squatter punk at first,” says Schreifels. “To get something going vocally I started singing in an English Niel Nausea kind of vibe [Nausea are a peace/squatter punk band from the Lower East Side of Manhattan]. The lyrics reflect the push and pull of being very connected through technology while at the same time being the most emotionally isolated group of humans to ever walk the planet and fun stuff like that.”

Quicksand have reportedly been working on a full-length follow-up to 2017’s Interiors album. Walter Schreifels presents a livestream show every other Thursday on the Vans website, where he'll hopefully keep us all updated on their plans.
