This quintet released its debut EP in December. Our reviewer found it reminiscent of late period Death Cab and early Teenage Fanclub, praising its diverse use of vocalists. Catch the band January 24 at The Good Will with Close Talker and ATLAAS.

Greek Riots

In November the band released the chart-topping four song Cavalier EP, which was recorded/mixed/mastered by Ron Obvious (Mise En Scene, D.O.A.). Catch the band February 6 at The Park Theatre opening up Moon Tan’s CD release.

Hearing Trees

The band released its debut EP, recorded by Michael P Falk of Les Jupes, and is rumoured to be back at work with him on a proper LP. Hearing Trees also continues to operate its underground venue, Suite 421.


The final Facebook post from the band (March 26, 2014) reads:

“Bill parted ways with PANTS yesterday.

Ryan and Nyala are going to continue writing songs together and hope to resume operating as a full band with a new member soon.

The name might change. A new page might pop up. We’ll keep you posted.”


The band that graced the cover of The Uniter also won Manitoba Songfest with “April Showers.” Rumour has it the group spent December working on a new record. Members also keep busy in White Foxes and The New Wild. Catch the band January 30 at the Times Change(d) with Kim Beggs.
