Meet indie rock seven-piece, Curious Quail, hailing from San Francisco. Described by Death and Taxes Magazine as “Evocative of what would happen if Owl City didn’t suck or if Ben Gibbard grew some balls,” this intriguing band is on the rise. Indeed, the somber lyrics and haunting melodies masterfully created by singer-songwriter Mike Shirley-Donnelly cut through a wide sonic spectrum, ranging from Imogen Heap and Regina Spektor to Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse. Though Curious Quail patents their singular brand of rock ‘n’ roll on their most recent album, INSTANT GRATIFICATION.
