Qualia Noir is a London based indie rock band comprised of members from both sides of the Atlantic. Equally British and American, the group opts for guitar driven energy and a hard hitting rhythm section culminating for a young and fresh take on the rock genre.
Though initially mused in August 2018 between high school friends Alex Gomez (frontman) and Matt Walter (bassist), the band did not take shape until October 2018 when Alex Gomez met Max Wanduragala (drummer) and Harry Ruprecht (lead guitarist) at the 'Fresher's Battle of the Bands' at University College London. After releasing an acoustic single and several months of gigging in London, the trio was joined by Matt Walter in May 2019 to record their first batch of full band singles under the direction of producer Ian Flynn. In Summer 2019, the band regrouped in America to perform a series of shows along the east coast between Virginia and Connecticut.
Qualia Noir draws influence from the likes of British artists, Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, and James Bay with an American flavour of John Mayer, The Killers, Foo Fighters, and Moran Street. Their full band debut 'Tomorrow' releases on September 20th, 2019.
