New York based The Qualia have a new single out, and “Just Won’t Stop” delivers clean rhythms and beautiful harmonies. The band’s name means personal, indescribable experiences that a person goes through when they’re feeling or sensing something, which is a good way of describing the experience of listening to their music. The crisp vocals ride on top of a traditional guitar sound with a compliment of keyboards combine into pleasing indie rock.
Their music has a sense of positivity. It is unapologetically upbeat, even if the lyrics don’t exactly agree with the tempo.
The band describes their sound as speaking “to the heart as much as the head. Reflecting the passionate and analytical personalities of Lars Casteen, Rossen Nedelchev, Matt Raymond and Will McCutcheon, the group’s music combines a wry sense of humor and dancefloor sensibility with lyrical depth and jangle to create their own brand of modern new wave.”
“Just Won’t Stop” was written in winter 2017/2018 as Lars was moving from temporary housing to temporary housing, and captures how overwhelming feelings of angst fade over time and leave you with little to say for the whole experience.
