Introspective music you can dance to, qr5 is a singular combination of reggae groove, pop contagion, and folk sensibility - respecting, yet at the same time consistently defying what is expected from any of these genres.

After spending years perfecting an ambient electronic/indie folk sound, the band fused the style they had created with reggae influenced rhythms to create a truly exciting new voice in Canadian music. Heartfelt and pensive, sometimes even mysterious, but always energized with a life affirming force, this is striking, original, and emotionally evocative music.

The band's 2006 release Pharmakon infuses their thoughtful pop sound with more rhythmic influences, creating a recording that is emotionally involving yet upbeat and danceable. The strong songwriting at the core of the group means the simple, central themes of the music and lyrics are never overwelmed by the ambitious production values and their iconic visual identity.
