Kim from Reverter, Evan from American Geography, some loops + some rad. A Vancouver-based experimental postrock duo, we explore sometimes sparse, sometimes dense tonal + compositional melodic directions. Experimental, with a side of noise + a side of sparklepop.

“The Vancouver duo mi’ens are going to make some nice, fresh waves in the scene with their new LP, experimentalsparklenoisepop. Festive & holding a rather high spirit, the tracks are fun, engaging, & make the generally maverick nature of math rock palatable & jovial. Being predominately loop based, guitarist Kim’s angular & progressive melodies build upon each other, exerting a psychedelic & almost hypnotic effect. Moreover, once looped, the melodies provide a backbone to the songs, allowing the band to pursue new musical motifs in the foreground. For example, soothing vocals are added to evoke a dream-like feel, matching the whimsical nature of the band. Building harmonies from the base up, Kim’s guitar lines are original and wedge themselves amongst Evan’s polyrhythmic drumming. Like a kaleidoscopic adventure thru densely populated tropical scenery. The vibrant core of the band gives post-rock a much needed boost of energy and youthfulness.”
