biographical info

The Subtitles play feel-good music with a reckless edge — like walking down a hill on the way to finally telling her how you feel.

With their first full-length album "Quick and Painless" release set for June 2010, the St. John’s four-piece have already shared the stage with acts like Joel Plaskett, Mates of State, You Say Party We Say Die!, Hey Rosetta!, and The Novaks, at showcase events including the Halifax Pop Explosion, The Atlantic Film Festival and the ECMAs.

Described as the 2009 ECMA “buzz band to watch” on CBC 2’s Drive, the Subtitles’ bold, synth-drenched sound has earned broad comparisons to contemporary bands from Wolf Parade to the Flaming Lips. Eighties influences such as the Cure, the Pixies and the Talking Heads are there too, but with a decidedly modern approach.

As one blogger explains, “this band has a palpable electricity that sparks through the speakers and arcs in wild blue bolts when you see them live. They can deliver a performance that fills the venue, grabs the attention of the barflies, makes the wallflowers wanna dance, and the dancers never wanna stop. It's a rare gift.”
