Quiet Life started playing together in the Spring, on that first good day of the year, when the sun’s finally in its place and birds make sense and you are back on your porch, or your roof, or your lawn, and you’re not by yourself. With roots on the Jersey Shore, sparks flew when they met further north in New London, where New England meets the Sound. From there, they ran down a dream to the California coast, all the way to San Luis Obispo, and then fled the Promised Land for the northern charm of Portland, Oregon. Wild Pack is the first new record in two years from an American band that knows the road better than you know your own cell phone. From Portland to Asbury Park to the California coast. Remember to check your mirrors. Cut the wheel. Flash your brights at the big rigs and let 'em pass.
