Quite Loud Tangles With The Finality of Life in Latest Single, ‘Dust’

Rising indie and surf-rock artist Quite Loud, the solo project of Jack Irwin-Cordner, has just dropped his latest single ‘Dust’, and we’re ecstatic to be able to premiere it. An evocative and instantly ensnaring release, the track serves as a poignant reminder of our mortality, a theme Irwin-Cordner admits he's grappled with personally.

This latest offering from Quite Loud perfectly encapsulates the spirit of Australia's vibrant surf-rock scene. It's a track that invites contemplation without sacrificing the genre's signature laid-back vibe, making it the perfect soundtrack for summer days spent pondering life's bigger questions.

In ‘Dust’, he masterfully blends a gentle acoustic guitar with understated percussion, creating a relaxed yet captivating soundscape. His vocals, both inviting and evocative, complement the melody perfectly, their inherent human quality amplifying the song's message. The lyrics, particularly the repeated line "one day we will all be dust," serve as a grounding reminder of life's fleeting nature, a sentiment that could easily turn sombre but is instead delivered with an air of acceptance.

Growing up in a sports-dominated town, Irwin-Cordner found solace in skateboarding and playing guitar, two pastimes that, as he puts it, are “Quite Loud.” This foundation in alternative culture clearly influences his music, which he uses to express the complex emotions of his youth, alongside a bit of playful nonsense.

‘Dust’ is available now on all major platforms.
