THE ESSENTIAL LETDOWNS: An esoteric power trash band from Kitchener and Guelph. Three (sometimes four) chord songs, under two minutes long, that’ll essentially let you down.
THE FAPS: Blair Colwell and Skyler Cafferata have been creating music together for years, developing a sound that is both broad and focused. Between the two of them, artistic influences are vast, but collide amongst Nick Cave, Modest Mouse, and Daughters.
Their brand of fast, heavy music is rooted in post-punk and indie rock, but flirts with hardcore, blues, jazz, psych, and pop. Often built on quick danceable rhythms and catchy guitar lines, their songs showcase an affinity for experimenting with structure – timings, key changes, or total mood shifts. While this may paint a messy and absurd picture, the vicious guitar-and-drum vessel of The Faps keeps an intriguing sense of familiarity, no matter how wild and erratic the sound becomes.
This concept of contrast is a common element in their musical endeavours, always maintaining a balance; beauty versus hideousness, harmony versus dissonance, steadfast yet loose.
SUNDIVER: Brooding guitars, jagged bass riffs and otherworldly vocals set the stage for the waterloo, ontario trio. sundiver’s distinctive breed of rock promises a live show that is both energetic and genre-defying.
