Glasgow native Stuart Dougan aka The Quilter, is set to release his debut EP this June, offering us a taste with latest single ‘The Long Weekend’.
‘The Long Weekend’ is a pulsating track that pulls together memorable synth sequences and guitar melodies.
For The Quilter, the song “was in part inspired by a viral clip I saw from the set of ‘Uncut Gems’ where the crew had finished filming and were all dancing to ‘I Feel It Coming’ by The Weeknd. It was just a short clip but I wanted to try and capture the palpable sense of joy that was clearly being felt at the time. It was written during lockdown and is basically a love letter to my friends and daydreaming about getting to hang out and have fun in a post pandemic world. I’m very aware that it’s bombastic and over the top in places but I wanted to purposely try and capture a sense of hopeful euphoria that one day, not too far from here, you’ll get to hug all your friends again.”
“Bolt The Door” EP by The Quilter is out 4 June 2021.
