Monday Profile Narwhal Strike
Somewhat a nu-gaze outfit, this group of young Winnipegers are gaining momentum in the local scene here. Getting a nod from CBC radio3 earlier this year has no doubt given them the confidence to make the move into the studio. Spacey melodic guitars and a heavy emphasis on rhythm makes the listener start to sway almost immediately. Levis' voice is relaxed and inexpressive at times and grungy and loud at others which reminds me a bit of Billy Corgan. I look forward to an album from these guys and I also look forward to seeing them Live at the Festival in January. Listen below.
