Drawing on a smartly balanced array of influences from emo, pop-punk and alternative rock, Quiet Like A Thief strike a poignant and thought-provoking note with their new single, “Window Pain”.
Quiet Like A Thief was born from the brains of Alex Kouvaris and Ryan Sweeney, whose friendship and musical chemistry is the beating heart of the band. With myriad tours and notable support slots from their times together in previous bands, Quiet Like A Thief is the melting pot in which the two young men have honed both their experience and musical insight.
“We’re lucky enough to have this kind of friendship, where lyrics are formed based on talks we’ve had. The meaning behind “Window Pain” is although we were groomed to follow the outdated vision that our parents did (high school, college, marriage, kids), in the current day and age we’re living in, it’s just not realistic for a lot of people, and that’s PERFECTLY okay.”
Following on from December’s “LAK”, a heart-wrenching tribute to Kouvaris’ father, who passed away from COVID-19 months prior, “Window Pain” is a track drenched in honesty, a nostalgic yet strikingly modern delivery of emotive pop-punk.
“…just because society predestines our future it’s important to say… screw that. Work at your own pace in life and do things your own way. Don’t let seeing others around you cloud your vision or your own destiny.”
Big hooks, heart-on-sleeve lyricism, cascading and beautifully presented melodic rock production adorns the band’s upcoming, debut EP, set for release in Spring. With the experience of Four Year Strong’s Alan Day behind the controls, Quiet Like A Thief are a prospect brimming with potential.
