Lights And Sounds

Lights And Sounds began with Maxwell Britton recording a million lights for fun in 2006 with the help of future band members Jack Merriman (drums) and Alex (keys). When a million lights became popular he recorded another track called Look What You've Become. This being even more popular than the first track, Max decided to make a go of turning this project into a band. Jack and Alex became permanent members and James Hatcher (guitar) and George Sparks (bass) joined the line-up.

Archivist

There are two bands named Archivist. One [1] from Montreal (long live Marie-Joseph Angélique) and one [2] from Belgium (long live King Leopold III). (1) It has become a common place to credit the deathly cold of Montreal’s lengthy winter season for the hot-chronology of creative outpour that has entered the global music scene from Canada’s tiny heart-shaped island. Archivist’s debut release Learning to Live on Poison, does not present an exception to this particular rule, though it will inevitably be accused of challenging a great many others.

Stock Exchange

Aural Window

Hailing from Melbourne Australia, Aural Window has been steadily building a loyal army of fans.

Aural Window’s influences stretch from classics like Guns N’ Roses and The Beatles to post-hardcore bands like Saosin and Secret and Whisper. The band released their sophomore EP, Cocoon and Epitropos, in 2010, receiving much acclaim for their patented blend of melodic furor within a post-hardcore dynamic.

In-Flight Safety

Starting out in Vancouver, the band began work on five tracks with producer Warne Livesey (Midnight Oil, 54-40), who took the band under his British wing for a month-long recording adventure. On their return to Halifax the band enlisted Laurence Currie (Sloan, Ghandharvas) to help bring the record towards the finish line. But, when it came time to sculpt the album into a satisfying wall of sound, In-Flight Safety opted for the hands on approach.
