Little Quirks is the family that accidentally became a band. Sisters Mia and Abbey grew up not far from their cousin Jaymi on the Central Coast of New South Wales in Australia. At family get gatherings they were all about making music for fun, playing whatever instruments were lying around following the demise of their parents’ touring rock band in the late 90’s. The Beatles and Queen would feature heavily. The three teenagers gradually formed a tight musical bond and began performing as Little Quirks.
The youngest in the group Mia (drums) only recently turned 18 years of age and often gets stopped by security entering venues to perform, but what they’ve lacked in fake ID’s, Little Quirks make up for in hooks, harmonies and explosive live energy. The band’s boisterous approach to the folk/pop genre unashamedly pushes catchy melodies and big rhythms to the fore. While their layered vocals will draw comparison to the sibling charms of First Aid Kit and The Staves, the trio’s direct and often epic songs land them in a space of their very own. Recently that sound captured the attention of esteemed NY indie label Glassnote Records who promptly signed them to a roster that includes some of Little Quirks’ own major influences in Mumford & Sons and Aurora.
With a DIY mindset that would rival any act – the band make all their own recordings, videos, stage costumes, artwork and merch – Little Quirks are a breath of fresh, unbridled and joyful air that is determined to keep the music fun. Just try and stop them.
