QUARTERBACKS – Center

Yesterday I surfed the internet and bumped into a new song by our beloved QUARTERBACKS (don’t know why we’ve never talked about ’em on GS??). We felt excited, then realized that it wasn’t actually a “new” one as they’ve already released a song called Center a few months ago. It was on the QUARTERBOY cassette, the tape they put out in May, and it was a lo-fi whispered acoustic ballad, extremely different from this new version.

Dean Engle has indeed re-recorded a bunch of songs with the help of Kyle Gilbride for a self-titled debut LP coming on February 10th via Team Love. The “new” Center is an infectious lo-fi garage/pop-punk song that lasts a minute and a half, reminds me of when I was young and, really, is more than compelling.

Listen below.
