FOWLER is an alt pop band from Winnipeg. Lead singer and guitarist Erika Fowler plays alongside bassist Marco Freynet, keyboardist Luke Udod and drummer Julian Brown. Their latest compositions are focused on blending Fowler’s ephemeral voice, precocious songwriting and catchy melodies with elements of synth pop, indie rock, and singer-songwriter genres.
Praised as “art pop transformers” and charged with a “fearless creative energy”, Yes We Mystic has in recent years become a steadily growing force on the Canadian indie scene. Touring tirelessly since the 2013 release of their “complexly orchestrated masterpiece” (Willow Grier, Beatroute) of a debut EP Floods and Fires, the band has become known for their fiery, impassioned live shows. They have performed extensively across Canada and Europe, including stops at The Great Escape, Reeperbahn, Orange Blossom Special, SXSW, NXNE, M for Montreal, Breakout West, JUNOfest, and Big Fun festivals.
Canada’s the Zolas are a melodic, ’80s post-punk and ’90s-style alt-rock-influenced outfit centered on singer/guitarist Zachary Gray. Formed in Vancouver in 2009, the Zolas began as a collaboration between Gray and former Lotus Child bandmate keyboardist Tom Dobrzanski. Together, they debuted with 2009’s Tic Toc Tic, which featured production from Howard Redekopp (the New Pornographers, Fancey, Tegan and Sara). Three years later they delivered Ancient Mars, featuring the track “Knot in My Heart.” They fleshed out the band’s lineup around 2015, adding bassist Dwight Abel and drummer Cody Hiles. A year later they returned with their third studio album, Swooner.
The members of Canada’s Attica Riots have what can only be described as a cosmic musical connection. Any musician will tell you that’s not always the case in a band scenario, where democracy can fail when egos, opinions, and dominant personalities do battle, thus sinking a band before it even sets sail. So, when you have that type of “on the same page” connection, you hold on to it. And that’s just what Attica Riots are doing. You can’t argue with the results, which are the fiery and infectious alt-rock anthems this trio creates.
