It’s been mere months since QTY’s debut single ‘Rodeo’ earwormed its way into the world. On their third and latest cut, the Dirty Hit-signed New Yorkers continue to showcase their emotive, quite majestic rock ‘n’ roll with an innate cool.
‘Dress/Undress’ sees the duo’s vocal partnership really blossom, Dan Lardner and Alex Niemetz’s respective styles working in perfect tandem. A track that they say “speaks to the anxieties, routines and amusements of our day-to-day life”, it’s ultimately a delight, the irresistible guitar tones that recall numerous NYC icons from decades gone by remaining a hallmark of their sound.
To label this as QTY’s strongest offering so far would be clichéd to say the least – everything they’ve done has been instantly impressive in its own way – but it does add further weight to any assertions that they might just be onto something special. The title is a metaphor for the two “bookends” of the daily routine; keep on like this and QTY will have a shelf full of hits at their disposal.
