Hailing from the extremities of Canada (Whitehorse, Yukon), The August Arrival is on a mission to invade the rest of Canada. EPs are designed to have the influence of an album in a more condensed preview, and this debut of six tracks does just that. Showcasing a positive, raw sound that is sure to catch your attention along with high energy vocals by lead singer Sara MacDonald, the proof is in the tunes Presidents and My Way. Fleshed out by heartwarming acoustics and drum tracks, The August Arrival is well on its way to newfound fame, or at least your record collection. Hopefully, full-time jobs, kids and geographical remoteness don’t slow down this sextet.
