Toronto garage-rock trio
D.C. garage sludge duo
Toronto based garage rockers Wine Lips hit the stage for the first time in the fall of 2015. Initially a part time project, the band began playing clubs in Toronto, stretching organically to surrounding Ontario cities and by mid-2017 it was clear that the band members were ready to make a full-time commitment. Wine Lips released their self-titled debut LP on indie label Fried Records and set out on their first 5-province tour, east to Halifax and haven’t looked back.
After an appearance at Le Knock Out in Quebec City, the band was approached by Simon Gaudry with regard to touring overseas. That chance meeting resulted in an April 2018 tour of Hong Kong and China, where they were received by enthusiastic audiences. Never letting the dust settle the band has been touring Canada consistently with no signs of stopping. Fronted by Cam Hilborn on guitar and vocals, Aurora Evans on drums and Richard Stewart on bass, the band continues to serve up their addictive, high energy, sonic tonic, preparing to release their follow-up LP and they began their first tour of the US in March.
Teen Mortgage is a guitar/drums duo with a sound that’s bigger and fuller than their setup may indicate, and a knack for writing songs that are as tuneful as they are loud. Over the last year, they’ve toured the East Coast thrice, and followed up their debut EP “Strange Times” with new single “S.W.A.S.” For fans of Local H, Japandroids, and Wavves…
