Quantum Keys – “Grow” & “Keep Good Habits”
Summer is right around the corner, and while it’s way too early to tell what song will be crowned Song Of The Summer, newcomer Quantum Keys is off to a good start. It’s the project of Maryland-born California transplant John Gudenzi, and his debut tracks pack a serious punch. “Grow” and “Keep Good Habits” are effortlessly executed sparkling surf pop jams that shout out Pet Sounds and embrace disarmingly charming lyrics like “Try to be crazy/ Fuck like rabbits/ Don’t be too lazy.” Besides the obvious Beach Boys influence, it’s very reminiscent of the Drums’ debut before they trended towards downtrodden on their sophomore effort. The songs are the first in a series of digital singles for Los Angeles-based label Hit City U.S.A., also home to bedroom R&B auteur Shy Girls. Listen below.
