Late show: IMU presents MINK VALLEY, CHAPLYN, The RACKET, & The GENTLE INFIDELS
MINK VALLEY - Hyperactive, loud, and infectious, Mink Valley is a three-headed monster with tongue planted in cheek and both feet planted firmly on distortion pedals. Full of catchy surf rock riffs, 90s indie rock nostalgia and hipster poetics, they play no frills garage rock with a timeless yet classic edge.
CHAPLYN deliver original, up-tempo, high energy funk rock complete with a horn section. Lead singer Angela has toured all over America as a background singer, singing on Letterman, Leno, Ellen, Dancing With The Stars, Good Morning America, The View and even a T-Bone Burnett record! Bring your sweat-bands and expect to be uncontrollably driven to dance to their contagious soul-inspired grooves.
The GENTLE INFIDELS offer a unique take on contemporary folk music, taking the energy of a symphony and compressing it into three instruments. Their music is fluid and melancholic, driving and intense, with tightly locked rhythms and unusual song structures that speak to a love of complex progressive rock.
THE RACKET is a a four-piece Vancouver-based band with male and female harmony vocals and a big sound. Playing alt indie rock with a pop flair, they write, produce, mix and master their own music.
