FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9 @ IRENE'S PUB, 885 RUE BANK ST. - 22h45
Like glitter-infused jelly on toast, Ottawa’s Sparklesaurus spreads their shimmering sounds. The sounds can be described as living room dream pop - pairing the emotional rawness of garage with the lush tonalities of glam, set in a low-lit, carpeted living room. Cut into triangles with the crust left on, their self-released debut EP, titled 'Perennials', delves into dark truths about humanity through plant imagery and concentric wordplay - with an undercurrent of gentle optimism. These themes are set amidst a landscape of scaling synths, swirling guitar tones, colourful harmonies, and a stoney, muscular rhythm section.
