The Elwins
The Elwins
Ontario-based indie pop outfit The Elwins have garnered an impressive pile of attention and praise considering their relative youth. From performing alongside acts like Tokyo Police Club, Arkells, Born Ruffians, Brendan Canning and Walk Off The Earth or at festivals including SXSW, CMW, POP Montreal, and the Halifax Pop Explosion to being heralded an "act to watch" by tastemakers like Exclaim!, CBC Radio 3, and Torontoist.com, The Elwins have rapidly risen the rungs of
the Canadian independent music scene – and all without a full-length offering to their name; however, that's set to change with the release of their highly-anticipated long- player And I Thank You.
Fast Romantics
Fast Romantics
Fast Romantics are a Toronto-based band first formed in Calgary by Matthew Angus and Jeffrey Lewis. The son of a piano teacher, Angus drifted in the margins of the Calgary music scene before forming the band with Lewis in 2008. Following some early independent releases the band began work on their first LP, Afterlife Blues (2013), shortly after moving to Toronto, with producer Howard Redekopp (New Pornographers, Teagan & Sara). The album was in some sense a process of discovery for the band, as they grew into their sound, encompassing new influences as Angus began to refine his songwriting. The album’s first single, “Funeral Song,” was an early culmination of this process, and rapidly garnered an audience via heavy radio play, propelling the band into a year of consistent touring highlighted by prominent slots at Virgin Fest, SXSW and CMJ.
Townes
Townes
Townes is the stage name for multi-instrumentalist Matt Radich. Originally from Oakville, Ontario, Matt now resides in Ottawa. After playing in many local bands, Matt decided to write and perform solo under the name Townes. Using synthesizers and guitars, Townes creates songs that will make the audience dance and sing throughout his live show. The influences for Townes include William Onyeabor, Diamond Rings, and Hot Chip. Townes is a constantly maturing musician who aims for the dance floor without skipping on substance.
