Amelia Lironi and Naomi McKay (Quad90) – Student Spotlight
QUAD 90 is vocalists Amelia Lironi and Naomi McKay, who are working with a range of musicians to record an album with Samuel Joseph Smith at Green Door studios in Glasgow. Amelia and Naomi met at Riverside Music College and recently started working on QUAD 90 whilst on their Uni course. The results have been encouraging, producing tracks with an avant-disco/brutalist funk feel, through a pop pot-pourri blender.
How would you describe your music, and who are your main influences?
Think Chic if they were produced by Martin Hannett on Ze Records!
Throughout our 3rd year in the performance course the performance class where we are put in bands and write and perform our own music has been very beneficial to this project. The songwriting classes have been very useful aswell when going into the studio to record.
Why did you want to study at Riverside Music College?
We decided to study at Riverside Music College as we’d heard a lot of great things about it and have always been very interested to learn more about different aspects of the music industry.
What are your future plans?
In the future we plan to keep recording and putting music out. We’ve been in the studio working on more things so stay tuned for more music!
This is our track which is available to order from Friday 26th may available as a 12” white label – Quad90 ‘Le blanc’ (Last Night From Glasgow)
