Quiet as a Mouse Short Info

Quiet as a Mouse are an indie/alternative band formed by singer/songwriter Alex Moran in 2012.

The group’s live reputation has quickly grown as QAAM have supported Hinds (Deers), The Orwells, Palma Violets, Coasts and The Crookes. Their first batch of London shows were with Club Fandango at Bull & Gate & Buffalo Bar as well as headlining Birthdays and The Old Blue Last.

These outstanding performances have earned them “Gig of the Day” from Ruth Kilpatrick at Amazing Radio, airplay support from Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music), Vic Galloway (BBC Radio Scotland), Chris Martin, Charlie Ashcroft and Jim Gellaty at Amazing Radio.

On the back of the free download track ‘An Accident Waiting To Happen (Awoo Woo Woo)’ the band released their debut single ‘Home Is The Hardest Place To Find’ in August 2013.

Quiet as a Mouse released their next single ‘Casketcase’ in February 2014. ‘Casketcase’ like ‘Home Is The Hardest Place To Find’ was produced by Marcus Mackay (Frightened Rabbit & Snow Patrol) and mastered by Chris Potter (Arctic Monkeys).

In August 2014 QAAM released their debut EP ‘British Flag’ which was engineered and mixed by Liam Watson (The White Stripes ‘Elephant’) at Toerag Studios (Metronomy, Tame Impala & The Wytches) in London and mastered by Noel Summerville (The Clash & Aphex Twin).

The band released their 2nd EP ‘Memorybox’ in April 2015, which coincided with launch shows in Edinburgh, Glasgow & London.

Quiet as a Mouse are currently writing and recording their debut album due for release in 2016.

The Daily Record called Alex “a genius and a prophet” and said of the ‘British Flag’ EP “like The Smiths, Orange Juice and Brian Jonestown Massacre; its knowing, fragile and indie-tastic.” They also mention QAAM’s first single ‘An Accident Waiting To Happen (Awoo Woo Woo)’ calling it “one of the best songs they have heard in over ten years.”

“Quiet as a Mouse are fast becoming one of Scotland’s hottest prospects…’Home Is The Hardest Place To Find’ is a soaring anthem packed full of melody…it reminds me of Snow Patrol’s edgier moments.” The Sun

The Daily Record said of the bands April free giveaway single “some bands don’t even achieve such a great track as ‘An Accident Waiting To Happen (Awoo Woo Woo)’ let alone give it away for free. It’s a contender for Scottish single of the year.”

“There is enough in Alex Moran’s band’s armoury to sink a battleship…New single Casketcase is a heady mix of Weezer and Nirvana, its Goth for the new millennium…I love this band.” The Daily Record

“They’re picking up a wee buzz about themselves.” Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland

‘Home Is The Hardest Place To Find’ was selected by The Herald’s Martin Williams as the 51st best song of 2013 and 27th best Scottish song of 2013 calling it “Majestic offkilter alterno-indie.”

“Inspired in part by the shimmer of Teenage Fanclub and the heaviness of Nirvana. This blend seems to have won them a few admirers, mohawk-haired Scottish music impresario Jim Gellatly among them.” Edinburgh Evening News
