Darkwing unveils new lo-fi track + performs at at Baby's on 10.18

Darkwing’s music exists in the weird crossroads of lo-fi indie rock and garage-fueled punk, an intersection featuring catchy hooks and the dankest of memes for street signs. This is the self-aware punk of the Cyber Age, the soundtrack for stoned conversations after a night of longboarding. The Deli is excited to premiere their newest single, “Big Red Heart.” It offers a more subdued and intimate experience than previous work (a result of a Tascam 388 and a living room recording) while still preserving the same attitude. Celebrate with the band at Baby’s All Right on 10.18, a benefit show for fellow scene member Chelsey Pickthorn also featuring Fruit & Flowers, Grim Streaker and Hot Curl. --Amanda Ogea, photo by Thomas Ignatius

   

Knifey - Full Tilt Pop Punk on new EP

 “Beached” is the new record from Toronto 4 piece power pop band Knifey. They have some well done pop punk that’ll remind you of growing up. You will get sad and pumped at the same time listening to some of these tunes. “Serf” is a very catchy sing-along tune that has some influences from Weezer’s Blue Album. “Tanlines” is right up the Blink 182 alley with a catchy chorus and quick pop guitar licks. Available for download on their bandcamp page. Knifey plays The Great Hall on Saturday (October 21) along with Pkew Pkew Pkew, Sure and Pineapple Girls. – Kris Gies

   

RoniCea - Debut Single "Bassline"

RoniCea is a Toronto based soul singer who just released her first single “Bassline (ft. YoDaddyDoe)”. This track has major throwback vibes. The spacious beat with the synth/keys over the top hit that 90’s RnB spot so well. You don’t hear many new tunes like this nowadays. This will be cranked with the windows down all over Toronto very soon. This has the vibes of the peak era of RnB. I think they should have extended the outro for longer and really let that beat flow. Still a good tune no doubt. – Kris Gies
