LIGHT RAIL TRANSIT
“Light Rail Transit (LRT) is a Canadian indie pop band from Toronto, Ontario. After a year growing tighter as a unit, LRT dropped their debut EP in February, which fuses modern rock influences with more far-flung 80s synth sounds and vocal layering. The result is diverse yet consistent: frontman Riley Urquhart-Ducharme bares his city-weary doubts over guitarist Josh Mclean’s clever lead lines, while bassist Simon Marsello and drummer Luca Cicero lay a smooth, no-nonsense foundation. Expect more from the foursome in mid-2019.”
“[Their EP has] retro notes, like that of The Cure, calming melodies, 80’s synth, and rock reflections” – Emily Dunlop, Canadian Beats
Kingston-based alt-rock outfit Kasador spent their first 3 years cutting their teeth on the road, garnering attention from their engaging and high-energy live performances. Duelling vocals and dynamic guitars delivered by Will Hunter and Cam Wyatt offer depth and versatility, while Boris Baker and Stephen Adubofuor provide a strong base for the band, rooted in rock and funk.
Kasador wrote and self-produced their debut 2016 EP ‘KASADOR’, which they toured extensively through Canada and the USA. Since, the band released a follow up 2-track single titled ‘Come Get Yer Money’ in 2017. Both tracks are featured on their upcoming full length, titled ‘Brood & Bloom’ – an album written through tough times and trying to find something more positive from those experiences. Produced in part by Graham Walsh (Sam Roberts, Lights, Wintersleep) and by Rob Baker & Gord Sinclair of The Tragically Hip, ‘Brood & Bloom’ is set to release in the fall of 2019.
