Taking a Look at Bellingham Bands: INVICTVS

INVICTVS plays rock music with a twist, as vocalist Jonah Falk raps while the band plays a blend of hip-hop and rock music.

Shaun and Dallas Quick are twins and have been playing music together since they were little. After moving from Seattle to Bellingham in 2014, the Quick brothers and their friend, Falk, started playing cover songs at a party. The gig didn’t go as planned, but Falk suggested they write their own unique style of rap music instead.

“It’s a blend of soul hip-hop with some funk and some rock instrumentation,” Dallas Quick said. “We lay down some rock and [Falk] lays down some raps.”

“Invictus” means “unconquered,” which the band felt was a fitting name. They decided to keep the original Greek spelling of the word, which is spelled with a “v” instead of a “u”.

Currently, the band consists of Shaun Quick playing bass and guitar, Dallas Quick on drums and Falk writing lyrics, rapping and occasionally singing. 

“We lay down some rock and [Falk] lays down some raps.”

The band recently released its newest EP on Sept. 22 and played at The Shakedown in Bellingham to kick off its release.

“It was a really fun night. A lot of people came out, and we had a blast,” Shaun Quick said.

They are also working on putting together another EP and recently played a house party on Friday, Oct. 14 with other local artists Bob Fossil, Drftrs and Portland-based Jane Deaux.

INVICTVS is playing on Thursday, Oct. 27 at 9:30 p.m. at The Wild Buffalo with Na’an Stop and Deadly D.
