I’m a sucker for a great Canadian band. One, because I love great music and two, because I just think Canadians are better.
Dinosaur Bones, a five-man band from Toronto, has finally released a full-length album after about two years of EPs.
It is no surprise to me that Dinosaur Bones’ first full-length was full of solid tracks. To me, the band sounds very Canadian and shares many of the qualities that Canada’s favourite exports have.
The emotion-packed vocals of Ben Fox mix well with the instrumental talents of the remaining four members. This shows a great example of balance within the music, which results in a pleasant but complex sound.
The songs are chilled out and eclectic, with a certain something that leaves you wanting more.
The spookiness in “Life in Trees” juxtaposed by the delicate title track shows the diversity of the band. Although still relatively young, this band will be around for a while and will hopefully start to make a name for itself outside of its home city of Toronto.
