Paper Lions – My Number

The east coast is alive with vibrant musicians and producers lately. Paper Lions are a band from PEI that are no exception to this surge of beautiful sounds – drawing influence from such pop heavy-hitters as Tokyo Police Club, etc. the 4-piece indie rock / indietronica group create sounds that are perfect summertime soundtracks.

Intricately layered instrumentation and well-thought lyricism place this group directly at the top of the food-chain as they eat up the Canadian club circuit on their upcoming tour in support of this single and their forthcoming full-length album, Full Colour, set to be released in 2016.

The future bodes well for this young crew, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in the coming months.

Sep 30 – Charlottetown – Delta Convention Center (1800 cap)
Oct 11 – London – London Music Hall
Oct 12 – Ottawa – Zaphods

Victoria based indie/pop electro-duo, LABS, began as an experiment in 2014 between long term collaborators Lindsay Bryan (vocals) and Adam Sutherland (keys and guitar). The intention was to create stock samples for electronic music producers, however, the demos quickly became full songs and thus, LABS was born.  The band has been quickly catching the attention of notables in the music business, recently linking up with Artist Manager, Nathan Beswick, former President and founder of SQE Music (At The Drive In, Rusko, The Faint)

The band’s sound contrasts high-fi to lo-fi analog synth and guitar tones, hooky melodic vocals, big drums and rich bass tones. Download their track Downfor FREE here: http://squeakshark.com/downloads/labs_down
