Since their inception in 2013 Lovecoast has been delivering a new sound that won’t go unnoticed. By bringing “together modern day indie pop and blue-eyed ’70s R&B” (Ride the Tempo), the band has created something bouncy and infectious. Lovecoast finds inspiration in modern acts like the Cat Empire and Lake Street Dive, and classic legends such as Billie Holiday and Bruce Springsteen. Uniquely fresh and nostalgic all at once, Lovecoast is an up-and-coming act from the West Coast of Canada to watch.
Towers and Trees:
Sometimes you have to step away to realize what you really have. Such was the case for Victoria indie darlings Towers and Trees, who less than a year into a hiatus precipitated by new babies, cross-country moves, and career changes, found themselves back together where it all started, this time with acclaimed producer Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge, Said The Whale) in tow. The goal: to create music that celebrates life’s biggest twists and turns instead of running from them, because as it goes the best things in life are worth fighting for.
This is the resounding message behind “Head Down / Heart Up,” the infectious and jubilant new single from Towers and Trees. It marks a fitting next step to what has always been a heart-first project. From their scrappy debut and its viral single Montreal to the heady anthems of 2015’s The West Coast, every Towers and Trees song is packed with authenticity and earnestness that is increasingly rare in this digital age.
Towers and Trees first made waves in 2013, emerging from Victoria as a Zone @ 91.3 Band of the Month and later a Top 20 finalist in Music BC’s prestigious Peak Performance Project (the largest artist development program in Canada at the time). Their music has played on commercial and CBC radio throughout Canada. They have toured Canada and performed notable showcases at Canadian Music Week, Break Out West, Rifflandia and Rock The Shores festivals, Khatsahlano Fest (Vancouver) and many more.
