Being Someone’s “Better Place” Described by The Q-Tip Bandits
Today the Boston indie rock band The Q-Tip Bandits have released “Better Place,” the second single from their forthcoming new album Melancholy Flowers. The new track speaks to the comfort and stability that two people can bring to one another, being each other’s escape from life’s stresses.
Since their inception in early 2018, The Q-Tip Bandits have emerged into the music scene as an energetic and vibrant act that continues to touch audience’s hearts. Their debut single “Willow” now has more than 1.5 million streams on Spotify, garnering enough momentum for the band to record their debut EP, Ain’t It Great. “Better Place” in particular shows Hoyt Parquet (trombone) Maclin Tucker (trumpet) and drummer Dakota Maykrantz continuing to bring a sense of energy.
From the first listen, it’s obvious to see that the track is an incredibly meaningful homage to the friendships we hold dear. Not only does it cover the importance of finding that special someone, but being that someone as well. The sound of the song provides a sweet sense of adrenaline with its beat, mimicking the adrenaline that occurs when dedicating yourself to those you truly care for. It’s smooth vocals glide through the bouncy instrumentals, and the trumpet and trombone additions does absolute wonders. For sure, what can be learned here is that joyous moments come when shared, split equally between the people who help guide each other through the multiple stages of life. Everyone’s goal in one shape or form is reaching a ‘better place,’ and no matter where that may be, The Q-Tip Bandits perfectly describe why exactly this goal should be reached in the company of those beloved.
