Four blood brothers creating infectiously catchy rock n roll laden with synth textures, dynamic rhythms, contemplative lyricism and luscious guitars. That’s the genius of Saskatoon’s post-pop rockers Foam Lake. Equally at home with swirling keyboard tones as jagged driven guitars, they far exceed the sum of their individual parts.
Comprehending the importance of maximizing their dynamic range, their debut full-length Force and Matter swings from absolute thunder to quiet whisper at the drop of a hat, while smartly abandoning frivolous embellishment and instead delivering only exactly enough of what is needed. Mining their father’s massive record collection taught these four siblings a well-rounded lesson that revealed the importance in balancing the grit and energy of Neil Young, the Smiths and the Ramones with the polish of newer post-punk and new wave groups.
Foam Lake will be releasing their debut album on Aporia Records October 2012.
