Hands up, 90s alt-rock fans. Our Lady Peace (before the lacklustre years), Moist, Treble Charger — ringing bells? In that case, I come bearing gifts for you.
Toronto band The Bleeding Lights have made friends with some key movers and shakers in the city, particularly when your music is best described as melodic alt-rock. Their debut album From Here To The Truth boasts Mike Turner (Our Lady Peace; Crash Karma) at the production helm, with Mark Makoway (Moist) mixing it all up into a polished package.
Already garnering attention from radio, TV and film, I think you’ll agree that a little more solid rock is a good thing in a scene crowded with EDM and bands trying to be The Lumineers or Wintersleep instead of being themselves. Enjoy “Collide” and “Skin and Bones” and do swing by their official home on Facebook.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a lottery ticket to buy…
