Quinn have had a crazy year since we premiered ‘I Wasted It’. But just what exactly have they been up to?
Aside from maintaining their hilarious social media presence, Wolverhampton-born trio Quinn have had a busy year since we premiered ‘I Wasted It’ one year ago. This release was followed by a string of publicity, including a chat on Brum Radio, in the run-up to their new EP Crush. They released the EP on 11th August admirably sending all proceeds to mental health charity Mind. That evening they filled The Sunflower Lounge, Birmingham, playing a launch gig with SKIN. Quinn finished off the rest of 2017 with a string of gigs including supporting Semantics at Actress and Bishop, Birmingham in September, returning to The Sunflower Lounge supporting The Cosmics in October, and playing The Sunset Beach Hut, Birmingham in December.
The trio were quiet for a while until they returned to the scene with a bang in February by supporting Trudy and the Romance at the Castle & Falcon, Birmingham. They also finally joined Spotify that month and began their own Spotify playlist! Better late than never. Their streams have gradually been increasing and they now have as many listeners in the USA as the UK! In March, frontman Sam returned to Brum Radio to chat to Tim Arstall on his show The Forward Factor.
After a 2 month gig hiatus, Quinn returned with a string of dates at the trusty Sunflower Lounge (they must be a resident band by now), supporting Jumanji in April, and Echo Gecco and Bully in May. Now back in the full swing of things, Quinn will be releasing their next single ‘All The Best’ on 1st June.
Frontman Sam Lambeth provided more of a personal insight into the year they have had: “The release of ‘Crush’ has given us some fantastic support slots – Bully and The Goon Sax, to name but two – as well as airplay on BBC Radio One and BBC 6 Music. The fact we raised £150 for MIND was also very rewarding. Since then, we have recorded our new single ‘All the Best’, due for release on Friday 1 June, with plenty more songs to come.”
