Daily electricity to load your batteries

Who: A rowdy bunch of people from Toronto who appear onstage with lots of noise and then leave. This half-silly, half-serious sentence summarizes the band’s fascination with psychedelic sound and culture, elements that fuse into a highly distinctive, dark and frenzied sonic landscape.
New single: FOOD FOR THE MOON
Piece from their upcoming EP ‘Citrus Magic’, out on July 28.
Torin Craig (the band’s songwriter):“The title comes from this phrase I found in a book, something about the moon living off of our emotions, basically farming us in a sense for sustenance – very occult. I can’t remember what book it came from and have been driving myself insane trying to find it again. The song itself was written in the days following a break
up, working with the feeling of futility, loss, and emotional torture that comes with that sort of thing. It’s two people who are both dealing with their own things and it gets in the way of them being together – and hey, what does it matter anyways, we’re all just food for the moon in the end.”
TUTV: Expect glam and glitter garage rock from the past century. This heavy haymaker
has a brawny mid-tempo drum-hitting inserted groove, that’s set on fire by an army
of frenetic guitars that attack your ears relentlessly and mercilessly.
When the barnstorming chorus kicks in your stereo will vibrate dangerously. Somewhere in the middle, the bassist wants his moment too and gets us in the right state of insane mind to confront the oh my electrifying God finale. This must be the loudest and clearest side of the moon. Pretty ace!
