Little Quirks is a band of two sisters and a cousin who grew up not far from each other in regional New South Wales, Australia. Singing and playing various instruments they found lying around the house after the demise of their parents’ touring rock band,the three teenagers, Jaymi, Abbey and Mia gradually formed a tight musical bond and began playing shows.
At just 16 years of age Mia (drums) is the youngest in the group. She is often stopped by security when entering venues to perform, but what they lack in fake IDs, Little Quirks makeup for in hooks, harmonies and explosive live energy. The band has a feisty new folk sound that bursts with boisterous melodies and pounding rhythms–think the bounding exuberance and stage craft of Mumford & Sons. The three have an almost psychic ability to blend their voices, drawing comparison to the sibling charms of First Aid Kit and The Staves.
Little Quirks’ first single ‘Crumbled’ has clocked up more than 3 million streams on Spotify since release in 2018. The follow-up EP ‘Cover My Eyes’ was released in January 2020. The band has played many festivals and supports for the likes of Xavier Rudd, The Teskey Brothers and The Preatures
