The eight-piece band boasts a pedigree of bands from the Vancouver scene dating back to the 1980s, such as Family Plot, as well as others through the decades including The Beige, The Beladeans and Swank. This gives the group’s rave-up R&B sound the right amount of swagger and precision to suit the giant vocals of lead singer Spencer McKinnon.
At 10 songs, the EP is more like a good ol’ fashioned record and really nails the brief of making music for a killer party. Best of all, the group’s real strength is playing live, so the show this Saturday should be a Main Street burner.
