Since their video release party in late September, Most People hit the studio to move past their EP Violet Spaces by starting a new chapter with the single “Bitter Wine”. The tribal like rhythm blended with lush synths creates an electro-pop style that is comparable to Phil Collins meets Braids.
Most People was started by multi-instrumentalists Brandon Gibson DeGroote and Paul McEachern in 2010. The twosome began performing live as a group in 2011 and recorded their self-titled debut the same year. In 2013, Most People was invited to be one of the inaugural Artist Incubator acts for Wavelength Music, long-running champions for Toronto indie music that discovered the likes of Broken Social Scene and the Constantines in the early ‘00s. After receiving grants from FACTOR, the band started to perform larger shows such as the ALL CAPS! Island Festival, Field Trip and toured with fellow Wavelength Incubator bands Fresh Snow and Del Bel.
The EP was produced by Toronto electronic musician DIGITS, who was the band’s first choice due to his minimal, clean style, and expertise in electronic production. As with previous Most People releases, it was recorded with Sydney Galbraith at Desert Fish Studios.
Most People play The Garrison in Toronto tonight (November 30), alongside Braids and Nyssa, as part of the Red Bull Sound Select series. Tickets are just $3 with an RSVP and $10 at the doors.
