Loud and Quiet is a free monthly music magazine that features new indie, alternative, electronic and rock bands and artists.
Founded in January 2005, it is distributed heavily in and around London as well as 30 other UK towns and cities. Its design style is clean and minimal. The magazine was founded by Stuart Stubbs.
Issue 01 of Loud And Quiet featured Pete Doherty on its cover. Only 150 copies were published in a home-made fanzine style and distributed through independent record shops and clothes shops in London, England. Since then Crystal Castles, Foals, Fuck Buttons, Bat For Lashes and The Horrors have all featured on the cover.
On March, 2016 Loud And Quiet starts distributing in New York.
On March, 2018 Loud And Quiet has relaunched its monthly print magazine with a new format and design.
To celebrate 5 years of Loud And Quiet, a small record label arm of the company was created in 2010 for the release of 'I AM V', a compilation featuring selected bands from past issues of the magazine. These included Health, Metronomy, Gold Panda and Telepathe.
Throughout 2008/2009 Loud And Quiet co hosted live events with London indie label Dirty Bingo, promoting shows for The xx, Micachu and Factory Floor. In October 2009 the two projects together hosted the debut UK tour for San Diego band Crocodiles.
In the following years Loud And Quiet hosted the second stage at Offset Festival, a two-day DIY festival in Hainault, Essex.
