Quake effortlessly blends pop/indie/psychedelic rock together to create a new age heartache anthem for those who’ve experienced the pain of a one-sided romance. Through psychedelic guitar strums, soft drum beats, a pulsing beat and his floating vocals, Quake pulls every single heartstring as he sings, “you only ever call me when you’re drunk, but that’s not love.”

“That’s Not Love!” is about drowning in shallow emotions,” says Richie. “The idea that when you live a surface level life for enough time, you start to forget what real depth looks like and feels like. Being removed from love for so long, it becomes a blur from the past with no defining characteristics. I can’t tell if it’s orange or pink or red, but it’s certainly not green, that I can say for sure. I don’t know what love is anymore, but love is not constant numbness, it’s not getting high in your room alone, it’s not a downward spiral, and it’s not a drunk hook-up on a Friday night.”

The Brooklyn, NY-based artist will celebrate with live dates supporting Rejjie Snow beginning April 19 at Velvet Underground in Toronto, continuing through April 30 at Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, CA. The eagerly anticipated run of shows will stop at New York, NY’s Bowery Ballroom among other beloved venues across the U.S. Additional dates will be announced.

“That’s Not Love!” follows last summer’s release of Quake’s acclaimed sophomore EP, VOYAGER, available for streaming and download HERE. Like the spacecraft of the same name, VOYAGER is a journey into the unknown, one that begins with a pursuit of knowledge and ends with connection. Tracks like “Sensitive,” “Afterglow,” and “Never See You” see Quake fusing elements of sound – from lo-fi indie and alternative pop to psych-rock and contemporary R&B – to reflect on universal aspects of the human experience: love, fear, passion, isolation, communication, escape. Ones To Watch hailed VOYAGER as “a tightly-woven six-track project…synthesizing funk, synth-pop, and electronic sounds with (Quake’s) signature flair for the experimental.” “VOYAGER is a flawless offering,” raved Lyrical Lemonade, “with plenty of depth, relatability, emotion and replay value.” VOYAGER “confirms (Quake’s) talent as a singer, musician, and songwriter,” enthused Far Out, “and elevates him above the hundreds of thousands of indie pop artists who are vying for the public’s attention.”

Quake – whose boundary-busting work as both artist and producer recently saw him featured on Spotify’s hugely influential Lorem playlist – has earned a wide range of critical applause from such high profile outlets as VICE, PAPER, NYLON, Pigeons and Planes, KCRW, Lyrical Lemonade, EARMILK, and The FADER, to name but a few.

PRAISE FOR RICHIE QUAKE

“With a retro-indie sound, Quake’s vocals serve as a subtle outcry for personal acceptance…As a result of the nuanced production, Quake’s emotions are seemingly felt with every word expressed.”
– LYRICAL LEMONADE

“Exploring elements of pop, R&B, and psychedelic influences, Richie delivers his signature falsetto vocals that groove effortlessly over warped, sultry guitar riffs and vintage synth sounds.”
– NOTION

“Effortlessly smooth…Endlessly listenable pop music that will make you want to cuddle up at home, light some candles, and bang.”
– VICE

“If you’ve been searching for some new flavors of contemporary R&B, you need to give Richie Quake a spin. The Brooklyn-based singer and producer crafts futuristic bedroom booming tracks for the emotional and introspective listener, making you feel cozy in all the right places.”
– NYLON

“Richie Quake has been impressing us for a while now with his approach to R&B, blending countless styles into one his own with a number of atmospheric and catchy tracks.”
– COMPLEX

“(Richie Quake’s) R&B is dimly lit with streaks of neon synths and huge kicks drums, evoking a fashionable basement party where (his) softly spun vocal melodies somehow cut through the bustle.”
– The FADER

“Favouring vintage synths and disco beats, Quake lies somewhere in the in-betweens on indie pop and R&B, bringing soul and salacious fun to both genres.”
– FAR OUT

“Richie Quake is nothing short of a creative visionary.”
– EARLY RISING

“There’s something to be said for the risk-takers in indie music these days. Creatives that work outside of the box and freely jump between genres and styles are what the entire genre was built upon. One of the most inventive of these creatives is none other than Brooklyn-based Richie Quake, an artist who has often flirted with elements of funk, psychedelia, lo-fi, and soul in his music.”
– EARMILK
