SWMRS - "Hannah"

Hannah might be one of the most addicting songs on their debut album, Drive North. On an album fuelled by punk-rock, Hannah is the slower track on the album with a odd vibe we’re loving.

Muuey Biien - "Bitter Blessings"

From Georgia, Muuy Beiin are a band to know. They’re dark rock is laced with a sinister energy that makes it hard to forget them. Seeing them live is a shock, even if you know them. Their undeniably odd stage presence is a little addicting. Check out their latest track below.

K.i.d. - "Errors"

Back with a new sound, K.I.D. is a name you’ll be seeing a lot more of. After listening to their latest track you’ll understand why.

July Talk "Beck + Call"

Incase you missed it, July Talk released a breathtaking new video for Beck + Call. Featuring Tanya Tagaq, the song is a look at power plays in relationships. The video features a look at the power dynamic expressed through movement.

The Pretty Reckless - "Oh My God"

The first single off of the third-coming album, Who You Selling For, is a hard step away from their debut single Make Me Wanna Die,  back in 2010. Gone is the glam-rock undertone from their start. Instead a metal element as been inserted into their past album and seemingly dominates their latest track.

They came and filled the venue with head-banging, while giving their all. The all women-band, played a set full of energy that infused the crowd. Catchy rock and a hypnotic set gave the room a taste of the talent throughout Toronto.

K.I.D. 

If you haven’t heard of K.I.D. you probably should look them up. Their fans are loyal, and more noticeably in love with the band. You see it as soon as they take the stage that they’ve filled with quirky charms like ironing boards and Fruitloops.
