Keep It Quiet by Whalers

“Keep It Quiet” drifts in on top of a wavy, synthesized guitar line and makes way for the vocals to sit, intertwining melodically in the pocket with the nimble guitar hook. The drums help to punctuate a deep, driving bassline, as the track takes off.

Lyrically, it is loosely based on an interesting evening where lead singer, Gus Smalley, was enthusiastically invited into a house party, only to be threatened with physical violence. While musically the song was written amidst a flurry of listening to post-punk/new waves acts like Wire, The Buzzcocks, and Talking Heads. The song is a quick, kinetic track that clocks in at 3:11 of raw, catchy energy.
