Marianas Trench
Marianas Trench
Increasingly people are saying the album, as a format,is dead. WithPhantoms(604 Records) Marianas Trenchprove –once again and unequivocally –that the reports of its death are greatly exaggerated.“I think we’re going to see more artists releasing singles and not really doing albums anymore,” saysMarianas Trench’s Josh Ramsay, “but that doesn’t really inspire me.”What does inspireRamsayis creating a self-contained universe for the band’ssongs to exist in –on Phantoms, ahousepossessed by the spirit of lingeringloss and inhabited by someone who’s being driven to madness by the ghost of aformer love.The band drills down into the consequences of that lossdeeply on lead single,‘I Knew You When’ –a track that showcases Ramsay’s staggering vocal range and the band’s ample musical chops in equal measure.“A lot of love songs look at the easy things. ’I Knew You When’is about having a long history with someone, accepting the faults in each other, acknowledging it’s going to get messy, and still being up for it.”As on past records, Marianas Trench draw on well-established strengths –their trademark, heavily layered harmonies, as well as blazing guitars set against club-worthy beats, but Phantomsfinds them pushing theirboundaries, musically and lyrically.“Each time we do an album, I try and write something that’s out of my vocal reach thatforces me to get better,” Ramsay says, adding that bassist Ayley, guitarist Matt Webband drummer Ian Casselman, his “threefavouritecollaborators,” are equally dedicated to pushing their limits vocally and instrumentally.“Once we had the idea everything was set in a haunted house, that immediately suggested a sonic landscape. So,if it sounded creepy, I’d use it,” Ramsaycontinues, pointing to thehauntingly manic, ‘Echoes Of You’,featuring Jellyfish lead singer, Roger JosephManning Jr. “But the goalis always to write a set of songs that complement each other. Not just to go chasing hits.”Multiple tracks onPhantomscould easily stand on their ownas singles; from urgent beat-driven tunes like ‘Only the Lonely Survive’ and ‘Don’t Miss Me?’ to borderline power ballad ‘Glimmer’. But listening toPhantomsfront to backis the best way for listeners to find the room that best suits themindividually,among the many in the house the band has built.From Phantomsjaw-dropping a cappella opener, ‘Eleonora’ to the unapologetically epic closer, ‘The Killing Kind’, with it’s deep orchestration, ripping guitars and vocal gymnastics,Phantomssheer emotional weight and brutal honesty will leave a lasting mark on listeners.“It’s about messy, real-life love with consequences; the kind of relationship that takes years to build,” Ramsay sums up. “Everybodyhasthatexperience, and
Phantoms, I think,will allow people to connect on their own stories,to the ones that we’re sharing.”Marianas Trench2019 Bio –Phantoms (198words)Increasingly people are saying that the album is dead.

The Unlikely Candidates
The Unlikely Candidates
Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, The Unlikely Candidates are an indie rock band initially formed as an acoustic duo by childhood friends Kyle Morris and Cole Male in 2008. Eventually expanding the lineup to include guitarist Brenton Carney, bassist Jared Hornbeek, and drummer Kevin Goddard, the band was also able to expand its sound in bigger, more sweeping directions. In 2013, the band signed on with major-label Atlantic and released their debut EP, Follow My Feet. In early 2016, the Unlikely Candidates returned with a hooky new single in “You Love Could Start a War,” which made a strong showing on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart.
DJ George Thoms
George Thoms is a Canadian born musician, turned DJ/ producer, whose start in the music industry was nothing short of unique. Raised in a deaf household and encouraged by musically gifted grandparents, Thoms received his first drum kit at the age of 12 and has yet to look back. Spending the early part of his career as the lead vocalist in the hardcore group, Gone Hollywood, while simultaneously managing the Drum Shop at Toronto music landmark, Steve’s Music Store, Thoms proved himself as a bonafide percussion expert, talented songwriter and brazen performer. Over the course of their 4-year run, Gone Hollywood toured and played, tenaciously taking the Ontario and Quebec hardcore scenes by storm. Upon Gone Hollywood’s disbandment in 2009, Thoms joined friends and fellow musicians, The Cancer Bats and later, JUNO Award winning group, Protest The Hero, working on tour as a lighting technician. Traveling across North America nearly a dozen times over the course of a 6-year period, Thoms stayed immersed in the hardcore music scene, but quickly saw his role as a musician evolve and present itself in a different capacity -As a DJ. Acting on his love of house, techno and hip-hop music, and inspired by the likes of DJ Jazzy Jeff and fellow Canadian, Skratch Bastid, Thoms took to the turntables and began to pursue a new direction and radically different sound. Thoms dedicated every waking moment to his craft. Taking an invested interest in turntablism and occasional lessons from scratch demi-god, DJ Grouch, Thoms became a sought-after talent, holding down residencies at intimate local haunts such as Cold Tea, Churchill and Montauk. Outside of his current 4 to 6 night-a-week performance schedule, Thoms continues to explore his love and talent for songwriting and production. Working alongside engineer heavyweights Quinn Daniels (Japain, Our Cloud Empire), Melvin Godfrey (Hedley, Victoria Duffield, Ariana Grande, Sean Desmond) and Connor Sharpe (Veld, Digital Dreams, Down With Webster), Thoms has quickly produced a bold body of work, including the sinister remix of Christina Aguilera’s “Genie In A Bottle,” and his latest single, “Get Weird,” which was released in April 2014 to rave reviews. Outside of his independent efforts, Thoms has begun to work closely with an array of Canadian artists, including Melanie Brulée, with whom he will release a remix of “Coeur Sauvage” in 2015.

With a host of new releases in the works, a number of collaborations in his sightline, an exclusive 3-night engagement in Paris, France this May, along with a soon-to-be-announced North American tour, which will make stops in Calgary, Edmonton, New York and Miami, Thoms is poised for continued success and widespread attention from audiences and industry professionals worldwide.
