Odd Years have announced their signing with Missed Connection Records while their sophomore record Slow Clap is set to be released on April 14. To celebrate the forthcoming release, the band have shared the new single “Troubadour”. Friends and bandmates since they were kids, the members of Guelph, ON’s Odd Years’ chemistry is apparent and create swaggering, richly harmonic, power-pop pieces that ripple with emotion. Their years spent playing together has allowed the group to hone their sound into something reminiscent of their classic rock heroes: classic yet inventive, familiar yet strange, accessible yet challenging. Their brand of hook-filled indie rock bursts with pulsating melodies, cascading synths, and driving rhythms.
Made up of members from fellow Canadian acts Cuff The Duke, Minotaurs, and Lowlands, Odd Years have had the pleasure of supporting acts such as Cuff, Hilotrons, Wax Atlantic, and Said The Whale, and previously performing at Elora’s Riverfest, Hillside, and River & Sky Festival. While touring their first record Drawing Lines, the album debut at #2 on CBC Radio 3 top 30, and Odd Years are now set to launch this new record with another national tour.
Odd Years perform this Friday February 24 at Elora Centre for the Arts in Centre Wellington, ON.
