Ask them about their cats

Started as an ill-advised solo project mashing fuzzy guitar rock, orchestral instrumentation and the sounds of 80’s and 90’s video game hardware, Curious Quail has evolved into more of a musician collective than a band proper with contributing members spanning the west coast of the United States from the deserts of the Coachella Valley to the Bay Area and the Pacific Northwest. Their mission has remained one of writing music that showcases an ongoing storyline told through lyrics and musical motifs while over engineering every technical decision from “how can we add more violin” to “yes the Game Boy needs an overdrive pedal”. They’re releasing two records this year; Empty Victories, and a nontraditional monthly writing exercise called Twelve Months, which is partially available on YouTube as you read this.
