Partner is the “mature” effort of small
town lesbians Josée Caron and Lucy
Niles. Borne of their bizarre and
fortuitous friendship, Partner boldly goes where few
have even desired to go, moving effortlessly from topics
like sex objects and gross secrets to more serious
themes like intimacy, friendship, and
existential unease.
Partner marries feminism and stadium rock riffage to
produce a sound as queeras they are, and their arrival
on the scene couldn’t be more timely: “Partner’s music
is like what early 00s pop punk would belike if it was mixed
with a reverence for classic rock era guitar solos. But unlike
that generation’s insistence of straight white dude figureheads
that traded a sense of humour for self-righteousness, Partner’s
songs are funny as hell.”
After a freakishly productive year of writing, recording and
touring, Partner are releasing their hotly anticipated debut
album In Search of Lost Time, on June30, 2017.
Their enthusiastic and action-packed live set has led
to them being named the “best new band in Canada” in
the Globe and Mail, and although “Partner hasn’t even
released an album yet, [watching] one of their sets, it’s clear
right away that they’ve arrived fully formed.” Influenced by
acts as varied as Ween, Weezer, Neil Young, and Sum41,
the record promises to make you question everything you thought
you knew about rock ‘n’ roll.
“Young, gifted and stoned, Partner are
the best new band in Canada” – Globe & Mail
“Partner really have everything they need
to kill any audience dead with the power
of their electrifying rock’n’roll.” – Exclaim
