All Boy/All Girl
All Boy/All Girl
Conceived by bandleader and composer, Nicholas Rahn, and uninhibited, theatrical lead vocalist, Danielle Lovier, All Boy/All Girl is an avant-pop collective that makes contemporary music laced with nostalgia. Taking classic influences like Arthur Russell, Philip Glass and Brian Wilson and adapting them to a modern, relevant context, the band uses lush textures and infectious pop melodies melded with bits of avant-garde and musical theatre. With instrumentation including viola, cello, ukulele, upright bass, guitar, drums and dual female vocals, All Boy/All Girl's expansive, creative palette is ever-evolving.

All Boy/All Girl’s debut LP, Tiny Iglesia, was released in late 2013 and led to the band touring through the United States and Europe in support. The music video for the lead single, “Dirt”, conveyed the intimate nature of the track to a tee, which embraces unavoidable mortality as something we all have in common. Delving into subject matter about our most primal emotions and fears, All Boy/All Girl’s lyrical content is gripping and real; coupled with shimmering vocal harmonies and undeniable chemistry between Danielle and soprano vocalist, Jessie Rogowski.

All Boy/All Girl’s carefully composed musical expeditions will soon take you on a new journey, as the band is entering the studio to work on their follow-up to Tiny Iglesia. The new material is both thoughtful, and forthright in its execution yet simultaneously spacious and untethered by the restrictions of genre. Look out for some exciting new sounds from all boy/all girl!

How Sad started out in the summer of 2011 in Montreal as the nom de guerre attached to a handful of personal bedroom recordings, but quickly morphed into a band playing tunes tailored towards live performance: fun, hook-laden, and driven by an old-school punk rock attitude. There's an underlying sombre tone to the lyrics, but having those themes juxtaposed with relentlessly energetic music makes for an explosive combination.
Their unpredictable live setup finds them pounding on drums, passionately shouting over laptop beats and screeching with warped guitars. After building a reputation for themselves in their hometown they set off to tour Canada and the U.S. in 2012 playing alongside acts like Purity Ring, Twin Sister, Rich Aucoin, Dom, and many more. Having played NXNE in Toronto, Sled Island in Calgary, Evolve festival in Nova Scotia, and Pop Montreal and M for Montreal, they’re back in studio working on a full length album to be released in 2013.
