Quiet Takes - San Fidel [EP]


“In the vein of acts like Azure Ray and Bat for Lashes.” – Audiofemme

“Bears a likeness to Cat Power…Utterly absorbing.” – The TapeDeck

“Wondrous in its mystery, lush in its synth mastery, a voice to soothe the madness, and lyrics you will come back to again and again…5 perfect tracks…Wish there were more…” – KVNF

“…uncertainty and melancholy is apparent in “San Fidel.” Over lush synth pads and rolling drums, Magill’s voice lilts singing evocative lyrics like “When the tourists go home/we’ll plaster the bone/make do with what’s been forgotten.” While it may seem sad, Magill says “San Fidel is about slow dancing in that uncertainty, gathering courage for whatever’s next.” – Surviving the Golden Age

“I appreciate music that puts you in a different headspace and the title track of Quiet Takes‘ upcoming EP “San Fidel” is a dreamy unspoiled travelogue. It is both spartan and lush. The lusciousness is primarily hinged on singer songwriter Sarah Magill’s melodies and winsome vocal aesthetic. The song is beautifully chill with jazz rock affections that, in spots, made me think of Steely Dan in it’s utterly exquisite nature. A mixture of cool elegance and groove, it is a pristine musical distillation of what is inside Magill’s head and heart.” – American Pancake

San Fidel was produced by Magill and David Bennett (who also plays guitars and bass on the record), San Fidel features additional keys and synth by Ian Thompson (Akkilles), drums by Kyle Rausch (Shy Boys), and percussion by Bryan Koehler (Akkilles). The record was engineered and mixed by Bennett, and mastered by Zach Hanson (Bon Iver, S. Carey). Continue reading full bio in downloads folder…
