Quelle Rox takes an original approach to indie pop with her latest release, “No Surprises”. Catchy, bouncy, and unique, this bop comes to us from Brooklyn, New York, and sounds like an instant hit.

Sometimes you hear a song and know it will spread, and this composition definitely feels like one of those. It’s a tune that needs just one listen to get stuck in your head and follow you throughout the week. Simple, steady chord progressions and writing structure ease listeners with a song that’s essentially formulaic, yet ironically surprising.

The vocals find strength in their versatility and Raquelle, aka Rocky, does a wonderful job of throwing them just enough to still maintain a delicacy in every breath. Beachy guitar lines string together the groove that keep listeners vibing. In a genre and sound that’s predominantly expressed by white artists such as Billie Eillish, Passion Pit, and Vulfpeck, it’s nice to get some representation from the Latinx community sharing this type of work.

It should be known that Quelle Rox is not only a writer but also a producer and recording artist with a clear and beautiful vision that shine through her every release—this very fresh ear candy included.
