This slyly named band hailing from Charlottetown, PEI, is comprised of four members: Fraser McCallum, Roger Carter, and brothers Scott and Adam Gallant. Their first call to fame struck in 2011 with their album Into The Hills. Their latest album, Close Your Eyes, was released in August and is continuing that streak of popularity among the indie crowd. To give us a taste, they released the second track on the record, “You Got Into It” (listen to it here).
“You Got Into It” comes with a folksy, soulful vibe and proves that subtlety is the best policy. It’s never over-the-top but it manages to be very catchy, not just with the chorus, but the prelude to the chorus as well. It’s a swinging, good-natured song with honest lyrics and an overall lovely vibe.
