"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!"

"A nice array of styles very much based in rock...I thought the vibe here was pretty joyous and borderline motivational...playful yet emotional...one 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."
