Since their inception in early 2018, The Q-Tip Bandits have emerged into the Boston music scene as an energetic and vibrant act that continues to touch audience’s hearts while getting them up on their feet. Their smooth yet powerful sound is backed by the raw energy of rock and the coolness and colors of R&B and funk - with palpable grooves coated with savory, soul-inspired riffs, anthemic horns and meaningful lyrics.
Described as "an indie-pop delight" by The Deli Mag, their debut single "Willow" made waves across the Atlantic, reaching 50,000 streams on Spotify within the first 3 weeks of release while being featured on over 2,000 playlists worldwide.
In the summer of 2019, the band set off on their first ever European tour, stopping in cities such as Valencia, Munich and Winchester before returning to their home city of Boston to record their debut EP.
Their debut EP "Ain't It Great" was met with great enthusiasm, despite being released amidst a global pandemic, and was called "a must add to your summer playlist" by The Courier. Though touring is on hold for the Bandits until further notice, the group has their sights set on getting back into the studio as soon as possible.
