In July 2013 Melbourne-based New-Wave group The Solicitors released one of the most talked about debuts of the year, in the shape of their 'Made To Measure' EP, on Australian indie label Popboomerang Records. The introductory release got some serious airtime on the National wireless and a plethora of internet radio stations. Garnering critical acclaim from print media, and countless rave-reviews from blogs the world over, its success led to licensing deals in Japan and the UK.

Promoting the EP the band have been cementing their reputation as one of the must-see acts of 2013 with their consistently raucous and energetic live show. As their stock continues to rise The Solicitors are back with their brand new single 'QUICKSAND' , part 1 of a double-A release, with part 2 due in December. Already a firm fan-favourite, this driving 3 minute pop-rock opus laments over a friend-in-need past the point of no return. The track embodies everything you come to expect from this band - big dumb hooks, clever arrangements, blunt lyrics and a sharp wardrobe.

lyrics

What a surprise, I oblige
Every time you flutter your eyes
But I saw the signs, I soon realised
That my lifeline, would be our demise

'Cos it goes right up your nose
Then you lie right through your teeth
And you leave me in the cold to take the heat

Heaven there's just no helping you
You're in quicksand there's nothing I can do
Every time I reach out my hand to you
Before you know it I'm in quicksand too

Quelle surprise, Mon amis
Pardon my french but you see
I'm gonna leave, you're out of your tree
We'll have to agree to disagree, with me

That you're my damsel in distress
And I'm not your marionette
So dry your eyes 'cos I'm not getting wet

Heaven there's just no helping you
You're in quicksand there's nothing I can do
Every time I reach out my hand to you
Before you know it I'm in quicksand too

And I know I'm just the flavour of the month
But if you ever need a favour, oh you'll be in touch

Heaven there's just no helping you
You're in quicksand there's nothing I can do
Every time I reach out my hand to you
Before you know it I'm in quicksand
Too little, too late, too bad now
You're in quicksand theres nothing I can do
Every time I reach out my hand to you
Before you know it I'm in quicksand too.
