“Hot and Clumsy”: A Captivating Blend of Ethereal Bedroom Pop and Intricate Guitar Riffs from Quiet Houses

Quiet Houses, the indie-folk duo from Edinburgh, have just released their new single “Hot and Clumsy” from their upcoming EP “Since July”.

This track is a captivating blend of ethereal bedroom pop, intricate guitar riffs and lively beats. The lyrics tell the story of the anxious excitement of being young and liking someone at a party, celebrating the clumsiness of vulnerability. The songwriters, Jamie Stewart and Hannah Elliot, met in school in Edinburgh, and started writing songs together after watching a concert in Glasgow.

They have previously released the EP “Big Town” and sold out launch parties in Edinburgh and Manchester. With their new EP, Quiet Houses look back on their formative memories of growing up together in Edinburgh, and the songs are overly-romanticized images of early adulthood. They draw inspiration from Phoebe Bridgers, Adrianne Lenker, Babygirl and Gracie Abrams, and blend indie-folk textures with lush pop production. Overall, “Hot and Clumsy” showcases Quiet Houses’ distinctive sound and storytelling skills, making it a must-listen for fans of indie-folk and pop music.
