Quietdrive – Let Me Go In

When All That's Left Is You

Quietdrive is a five-piece band hailing out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Band members Justin Bonhiver (guitar), Droo Hastings (bass), and Brandon Lanier (drums) went to high school and played in local bands together, including ‘Fury.’ Regrouping and forming Quietdrive in 2002, they added Kevin Truckenmiller (vocals, guitar, violin), and the group started playing a catchy, unique, alt-rock sound.

Truckenmiller’s side project at the time, ‘Sneaker 2 Bombs,’ featured college buddy Matt Kirby (back-up vocals, second guitar). In 2004, Quietdrive and S2B merged and called themselves ‘Sneaker 2 Bombs.’ Signed to Sony/Epic records in early 2005, the band once again changed their name, this time to ‘The Never Ending,’ but quickly made the permanent change back to ‘Quietdrive.’

When All That’s Left Is You is Quietdrive’s first LP, released in May of 2006. Its first single was “Rise from the Ashes” and was featured on EA’s NHL 2007 soundtrack. Their cover of the Cyndi Lauper song “Time After Time” is currently being used in promotions for the WNBA for its “Have You Seen Her‘” campaign. And also, that song was featured in the movie John Tucker Must Die which came out in Australia on the 7th Sept 2006.

在电台听到的是那首“Time After Time”,查了资料才知道是翻唱的呢,汗,跟原唱的风格好不同。乐队去年发行的这张处女专辑,在国内的现在来说,算新手和新专辑了。又是另类五人校园乐队,似乎听得出一股很浓的未脱稚气,主唱的声音挺不错,很耐听。下载连接少啊,打包下载又太慢,将就。另外貌似有个软件跟乐队同名啊。 Continue reading
