Are you ready for your new favourite band, Newcastle? We certainly hope so because The Quokkas have landed!
A no-fooling Newy supergroup, The Quokkas feature the formidable talents of Komiti Levai, Matt McLaren, Hit 106,9 Newcastle presenter Nick Gill, Steph Tuyl, and Pam Hyde and their goal is simple – to bring smiles to the faces of our littlest citizens while promoting positive messages of inclusivity and diversity.
The band has definitely hit the ground running, releasing a six-song EP Everybody’s Welcome this week, along with accompanying clips for each track.
Check out The Quokkas’ Everybody’s Welcome below
The EP’s title track has, in our humble opinion already taken out top honours for 2020 feelgood hit of the summer and we’re technically still in spring!
While the Quokkas are aimed squarely at the little tackers, we defy anyone, after just one listen to Everybody’s Welcome and not be totally swept away in its sunny, positive vibe.
This writer has had the lines – Everbody can like a different food/And Everybody can wear some different clothes/ I like felafel and you like banh mi/ But that doesn’t mean we don’t agree – running on a constant mind loop all day.
And I’m completely okay with that because The Quokkas is the band that 2020 needs right now!
