West End Cultural Centre: Courage My Love with the New Electric, April 16
Courage My Love & The New Electric will be performing a co-headlining show at the WECC on Sunday, April 16th. Tickets are $12 in advance.
COURAGE MY LOVE
We are all built for change and evolution, and Kitchener's Courage My Love is no exception.
These Warped Tour warriors have advanced their sound from feverish guitar-bass-drum pugilism to something more complex, dynamic and striking for their debut InVogue/Warner Music Canada album, Synesthesia. Fans will notice within the very first few bars of "Stereo," Courage My Love's incredibly contagious first single, a sumptuous synth hook indicating that twin sisters Mercedes (singer, guitarist) and Phoenix (drums, synth, programming, vocals) Arn-Horn and bass player Brandon Lockwood are pursuing more sophisticated sonics.
"We didn't want to be stuck underneath a female-fronted rock band ceiling," Mercedes admits. "We wanted to reach beyond that constraint and see where it would take us."
Phoenix, who taught herself synth programming during the Synesthesia sessions, says that the Juno-nominated trio's songwriting attitude has changed considerably since 2015's Becoming (an album compiled of previous EPs.)
THE NEW ELECTRIC
The New Electric, based out of Calgary, Alberta have laid their foundation to become the next big name in Pop / Alt. Since forming in 2014, the band has worked with Kevin 'Chief' Zaruk and Jeff Ojeda (of Chief Music Management: Florida Georgia Line, Dallas Smith, Head of the Herd) to put together an undeniable fresh new sound. In the Summer of 2014, The New Electric got together with world-renowned producer Brian Howes (Hedley, Simple Plan, Boys Like Girls) to record their debut EP in sunny Los Angeles. Their breakthrough, catchy sound is sonically inspired by: Maroon 5, One Republic and Imagine Dragons.
Their melodically infused hooks are bound to grab your attention and inspire a new direction in the digital age of music.
With help from our partners and sponsors Assiniboine Credit Union, Winnipeg Free Press, Winnipeg Arts Council, UMFM, The Government of Canada, and The Government of Manitoba.
