We're about to drop some physics on you real quick, so get ready. Dictionary.com defines a quark as "any of the hypothetical particles with spin 1/2, baryon number 1/3, and electric charge 1/3 or −2/3 that, together with their antiparticles, are believed to constitute all the elementary particles classed as baryons and mesons; they are distinguished by their flavors, designated as up (u), down (d), strange (s), charm (c), bottom or beauty (b), and top or truth (t), and their colors, red, green, and blue".

Admittedly, physics was never my strong point, so I dozed off about nine words into that sentence. As I lazily made my way through the rest of the definition, the latter half seemed to remind me a bit of nature traits that characters can have in the Pokemon video games, which makes it a bit more interesting. That may or may not be what Brooklyn indie quartet Skyes had in mind when they were naming their latest song 'Quarks', but if it was, more power to them.

We have the exclusive premiere of the aforementioned track below, which is one hell of a follow-up to their previous single 'Burden', which we christened as "a mysterious, holy-like experience". Powerhouse vocalist Dallin Knightly coos sweetly over Dan Tirer's masterful guitarwork (and kickass solo about halfway through the song) making it one of my favorite . Although 'Quarks' is only the band's third release, it's clear that they've got something special on their hands with their atmospheric indie-rock sound, so make sure you keep an eye on them throughout the year.
