THE TOWN HEROES from Halifax / Canada...

“This two piece from Halifax/Canada is one of the biggest surprises this year. Extremly catchy songs, tight sounds, enough hooklines for the next 10 years. Minimalistic set-up but huge (huge!) sounds. Bands like Weezer, Weakerthans or Neil Young and the White Stripes could be jealous of their song- and sound qualities.“


The Town Heroes are an alternative rock power duo from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, crafting catchy, lyrical, hard-hitting and anthemic songs that sound like a party you wish you were at. Although minimalist in terms of numbers, their sound is anything but that. Self-described as “The most noise two Cape Bretoners can make”, that noise is a cascade of passion, urgency and belief in their songs. On stage they move like intense caricatures–soaked in sweat, pushing every chord, note and beat to the limit. A structured wall of sound emerges; familiar yet distinctive. The Town Heroes have fully embraced the ideals of a two-piece rock band. Camaraderie shows in their musicianship, the song-writing highlights what they are: Two friends, playing music for the love of it, in it for the long haul. Their songs are an honest approach to the trials and tribulations of life, taking into consideration small town values, coming of age, intriguing people encountered, friendship, hope and the various conflicts that arise from a jobless island and its steady outflow of people. Their second album "Sunday Movies" an 11-song collection of clever, well-crafted songs, was released in Canada in October 2013, now available for the first time in Europe through Rookie Records
