Introducing: Quitter – Monument Road & 3 Qs

I have written about Penny Drop from this album on my blog and shared a video.

“‘Penny Drop’ is the first single to be coming from Quitter’s forthcoming new album, out September 2023 on Gold Mold Records and Heavenly Creature Records.”

This line explains my high interest in this release. My two favorite labels are releasing this album on vinyl records. I am really excited about this team-up.

To be honest, the album is the actual reason why I am sharing this with you. Lo-fi fuzzy emo alternative rock with a lot of 90s vibes. Something that exactly suits my taste and something I can listen to any day.

I am so glad this came my way because I would have missed it otherwise.

The album is enjoyable from the first track to the last and is intended to be listened to fully so you can appreciate all the little nuances in the melody that make it so yummy.

So if you are running or cycling, 45 minutes of your time are required to fully devour this album. I will be listening to it while doing my new job when the only thing I can have opened that is personal and is tolerated is Spotify (maybe I will persuade them for Bandcamp too).

I reached out to Kenny from Quitter and asked him our 3 Qs

What inspired you to start making music and what keeps you making music?

I definitely flipped from learning to play others songs to needing to write my own around age 13 when I borrowed my sister’s boyfriend’s copy of ‘Nevermind’.
Over 20 years on I’m still doing it because it still brings me such a buzz, only now it’s also the catalyst for spending time with friends – bandmates and the other bands and musicians in our little ecosystem in Glasgow.
I think a lot about being a ‘lifer’ with the music stuff – realistically I’ll never stop writing and playing, regardless of the size of audience we acquire along the way. You try and do something original and true to you, and the coolest part is that everyone on a level in a local community inspires and influences each other, and if you end up getting loads of opportunities with your music or if you inspire someone else who goes on to those opportunities instead, it’s all good stuff. Everyone’s in the same boat and you end up where you end up.

What was the most challenging thing in your music (artistic) path?

I think it’s time. You could throw as much of your time into the whole music thing as you want, it could completely take over. But you need to hold down a job if you want to have a roof over your head, and you need to respect and look after your relationships if you want to stay healthy and happy. Sometimes you think about what you might be able to do if you had the freedom to give all your time to your music. And other times you’re incredibly grateful you don’t!

What would you dream to do if anything was possible?

I’d love to travel everywhere with my music, adventuring with friends and meeting new people, experiencing new cultures, making loads of great memories. That’s the dream.
