"Quaint Delusions came out of the gate with a powerful sound on their debut album Basking In Irrelevance.  Quaint Delusions shows all the stops on this great debut record. They show us a good time with their feel-good harmonies and lyrics that definitely brings you to that sweet spot.  What a great introduction this is and I definitely can’t wait to hear more!"

- The Indie Source

"A nice array of styles very much based in rock...I thought the vibe here was pretty joyous and borderline motivational...playful yet of the coolest guitar solos I heard in recent memory.  In my opinion the band's debut and their follow-up were great albums.  I’m glad I discovered them and think you will be too."
