Toronto Indie band, Alright Alright, puts a new refreshing twist on rock and roll. Alright Alright established their band in 2007 when all four musicians from Oakville, Ont., joined forces. It seems these guys turned influences such as The Beatles, Velvet Underground, Phil Spector and The Clash into their own contemporary twist on rock and roll.
The band is made up of Omar Saab (lead vocals), Graeme Moffatt (bass), Dave McCamus (lead guitar) and Curtis Courtemanche (drums). The group has released two EPs, but has decided that, rather than compose a full-length album, the new songs will be released in a series of stages throughout the year, as part of their alliterative project Cellar Singles, appropriately named as they recorded in what used to be a wine cellar.
It’s hard to describe what their actual sound style is, but with several different influences, their music is nothing less than amazing. I feel like I am being blasted into the past when I hear their tunes, like I should be living in the ’60s. But don’t let that statement fool you, these guys are refreshing and exactly what the music industry is missing these days . . . good old fashioned rock n’ roll.
The band has played NXNE 2013, Toronto’s International Indie Week, along with the Sound of Music festival with The Stills, to name a few. Alright Alright, along with Paper Lions (another amazing band!) will be performing October 12 at The Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto. If you are in the area or can make your way to experience these bands live – then do it! Both groups play like it’s the last gig they’ll ever play – so much passion and energy from these guys, you won’t leave disappointed. Alright Alright have a very promising future.
