Originally hailing from Vancouver Island, Oscar Tango is an electric guitar wielding Rock & Roll band currently based in the city of Toronto. The four band mates have been shaking down the Toronto music scene in various groups for the last few years, but suddenly Oscar Tango was hatched in the winter of 2010, when they dropped their infectious power pop anthems on an unsuspecting packed house at the Silver Dollar.
For three months during the summer of 2011, they recorded their first EP with legendary rock producer Nick DeToro, who has so far created magic with Sloan and Luke Doucette, and has also toured with the Trews, Big Sugar and other Can-Rock giants. The record blasts out of stereo speakers like a bolt of lightning, reminding listeners of perhaps Joe Jackson, Thin Lizzy and the Beatles all at the same time.
Fronted by ex-Mermen Attack singer Ryan Farley, their razor sharp three part harmonies will leave any concertgoer guaranteed to be singing Oscar Tango songs the next morning. Every night, bassist Jeff Carter, lead guitarist Tristan Clark, and drummer Trevor Falls throw their energy into their anthemic vignettes about life and all its euphoria, lust and vices. Oscar Tango is currently working on a full-length album, and touring to support their EP, look for them at a rock-stop in your town!
