WHO: Owen Carrier, Nick Rose, Alex Winter, Morgan Waters, Tyler Kyte
HOMETOWN: Toronto, Ontario
LATEST RELEASE: TBA (August)
WHY YOU’LL LOVE THEM: They have an attitude laced with adolescent spunk and a sense of gentlemen charm that makes crowds buckle with delight. Case in point: the EMI artists turned Lee’s Palace in Toronto into a chaotic dance haven during Canadian Music Week 2010 and that’s without a debut record to their name. There’s no need to worry as the Rob Schnapf-produced effort (Nine Black Alps, Beck) drops August 17th.
SOUNDS LIKE: A daring version of The Hives hooked on sweeter harmonies.
