WHOOP-Szo (Guelph/London ON)
Renowned for their cross-genre exp erimentalism, unabashedly unique, WHOOP-Szo is a wild fusion of folk, metal, pop, grunge, and even classical musical stylings. Though radically diverse in tone, WHOOP-Szo has crafted their many sounds well, and are able to create immersive musical tapestries that evoke deep emotions while conveying troubling stories of civil unrest via layered harmonies, churning guitar, gritty synth, and a whole psychedelic plethora of other noise.
New group Window Lamp is an interdisciplinary collective project with an ethereal take on surf rock. Their guitar and percussion jangle along as an intentional echo for vocalist Haley Gunn’s reluctant spoken-then-sung vocals. Her words and moans clamber to narrative fruition, while the beat builds to support her vocal thought-process throughout. - https://m.sledisland.com/2019/window-lamp
Zoon (Selkirk, Manitoba / formerly Bloom* )
With a clear love of the early days of shoegaze (think Kevin Shields) and a romantic appreciation for all things Brian Wilson, Hamilton, Ontario’s Zoon are the harbringers of something new in this world. They have guitars, drums and other contraptions, yes, but it’s what they do with them that sets them apart. They sing too, often over each other – a capella, like they used to do back in the day. They are “young and full of life” and subsequently so is their music, which often takes an ethereal reverbed out POP twist.
