Quiet Type, aka Portland indie pop duo Lee Barbara & Bobby Seus, have spent the last two years put writing, recording, producing and funding their first full-length record. Describing the process as being “an intense journey, fraught with unexpected twists and turns” they’ve finally made it and have announced that the record is available to pre-order on their bandcamp page.

We’re delighted here on backseatmafia.com to premiere the resulting collection of songs ‘Times are Strange’ – part squeeze, part beach boys, part hazy, sugared up Alex Turner, it’s a record that will sit long in your heart and mind. Check it out, here
