Before you can catch quinnie on tour with the Japanese House later this year, you can find her – dreamy beats, velvety vocals and all – in the deluxe version of her debut album, flounder: an 11-track effort crammed with the artist’s heart-wrenching style of storytelling. From the sparkling harmonies of “man” to the ethereal percussion in “better”, quinnie’s voice remains commanding throughout; establishing the ultimate balance between soft and soulful, strong yet touchingly gentle.
Speaking on the release of her latest work, the songwriter and indie artist explains, “Flounder (deluxe) paints a more well-rounded picture of what my life looked like throughout writing this album. These are songs that still equally represent the person that i was, but otherwise didn’t contribute to the overarching themes and palette of the album. These songs exist simply for enjoyment and i hope they can live up to that for you.”
Staying true to her craft and her audience, quinnie beckons in the latter half of the new year with a spirit of reinvention — allowing us all to indulge in the vast array of her audial universe with fresh ears, soaking up every last raw, open and honest word.
