Although best known for playing in a long lineage of hardcore, punk, and metal bands, Mark Palm’s focus has always been song- craft and pop sensibility. After finally embracing all that is sweet and sublime as the primary songwriter of San Francisco’s shoegaze darlings Modern Charms, Palm continues to explore the saccharine side of things with his new project, Supercrush. -
Paradise put rosé-coloured glasses on your shoegaze fantasy. The homegrown band boasts an exclusive membership distilled from some of Calgary’s finest punk-fuelled acts including Empty Heads, Licorice and PMMA. Generating feedback-soaked anthems for a livid and lonely millennium, these alt-rock daydreamers pull a hazy pop-frosted filter over the glare of harsh reality. - https://www.sledisland.com/2018/paradise
Pre Nup are a duo cranking out bursts of pop-punk that harken back to the genre’s golden era. Filled with lyrics about grammar and Tommy Wiseau, their tunes are a perfect compromise between sincerity and having a laugh. Clocking in around the two-minute mark, each song is a fast and loud example of what they call “wimpy pop music.” - https://www.sledisland.com/2017/pre-nup
