This Vancouver five-piece have only recently filtered into our consciousness, despite having released their debut full-length Ghosts Emerging in 2009. Latest effort Strange Bruises, which is out now on Light Organ Records, revels in rich, longing melodies that Mozza himself would be proud of, brooding synths and heavily reverbed drums straight out of the 80s playbook. But creeping out of the gloom, hidden behind the self-consciously gothic severity, there lie hooks galore. Catch them at a handful of UK dates this month.
