Quarterpounders music is a playful, yet disciplined mix of such adverse influences as twelvetone music, country, and powerpop. It is jazz with rock energy. It can be really loud, really soft, and lots of things in between. You'll never leave one of their concerts bored, but maybe you've found yourself a new favorite band. The two horns in the frontline play together magically, as if their minds were connected with high-speed and no-latency. They are grounded and supported by a super-flexible pianoless rhythm section, that makes the often complex multi-metric tunes, like the quirky "Another Boring Day At The Institute", sound almost like pop songs.
But there is a softer side- the fragile, delicate ballads, like "If It Was…", have a moody and dark film-noir quality to them and show the band's ability to play beautiful melodies.
