For those of you who didn’t know, We are Caribou is a new Canadian band that’s taking the country by storm. The fact that it’s only been around for a few months has everyone wondering where this band is right now. Well, they’re making history.
The band started in Vancouver, British Columbia and has since gone on to play in many cities including Toronto, Montreal, and even Washington, D.C. They have a very unique sound that blends well with other Canadian rock bands such as Taking Back Sunday and Weezer. It’s difficult to describe their sound because it’s hard to describe music. You’ll just have to experience it for yourself. I was lucky enough to see them play in Vancouver and you can find videos of their set on YouTube.
I wasn’t able to attend the show in Vancouver but I did see them perform live in a small club in Washington, DC. What I noticed at the club was pretty wild. I don’t think there was any crowd at all so I’m assuming that the venue was partially open and a lot of people came to see them. Some of the crowd were wearing Weezer shirts. It was really wild to see that many people enjoyed the show We are caribou.
From what I understand, they’re doing very well in Canada and are about to go on tour with Panic! But till now, We Are Caribou are playing smaller venues around North America. Their shows are definitely not a big hit but for someone who appreciates alternative music, it’s a great change from mainstream promoters.
They’re about to get on tour with K Records. I was lucky enough to hear them at a bar in Vancouver before their first show. They were just starting off and their singer, Travis Parker, impressed me with his amazing voice. I highly recommend them to anyone who loves music of any style. If you haven’t heard of them, you’re definitely going to fall in love with We Are Caribou.
They are definitely making an impact on the Canadian music scene. It’s exciting times for anyone that loves music and independent artists. With the economy not doing so hot, the music industry is adapting by bringing in new music and creating independent labels that give bands the opportunity to make it in the business.
My favorite independent record label is called Unique Needle. I love the energy and the enthusiasm they have for the independent music community. It is a perfect balance between promoting and selling. They are also very willing to take chances with new acts that have potential. My favorite record label in the Greater Toronto Area is called The Arty Record Company.
If you love indie, alternative, rock, heavy metal or alternative, there is a record label out there that is perfect for you. Whatever your music taste, you should definitely give it a shot and see what opportunities come your way. As long as you continue to grow and evolve, there will always be something great out there for you.
