Animal Boy is a genre-bending alternative rock band from Guelph, Ontario formed in 2019. With the lyricality and narrative of ballads and the style and tone of punk rock, Animal Boy offers a unique sound which defies strict categorization. Delivering high-energy, danceable instrumentation and memorable, honest lyrics, the band takes inspiration from artists like Carseat Headrest, Alvvays, and IDLES. Animal Boy has recently been featured at Riverfest Elora, Canadian Music Week, NXNE, and has opened for internationally touring bands, Born Ruffians and MONOWHALES. In January 2023, Animal Boy released their third full-length album, My Love is a Terror and is set to release an EP titled ‘CURSE’ in June 2024.
Habit is a seething and emotional rock and roll band from Guelph, ON. Combining the angular guitar sound of post-punk with the jarring dynamic shifts and ramshackle spirit of vintage indie rock, Habit has garnered acclaim for its EP The Last Testament, which has led to performances opening for legendary noise rockers Cloud Nothings & Polaris Prize-nominated jangle pop band Apollo Ghosts.
Fusing elements of kosmische music, free jazz, and post-rock Thresher offers a bad trip wrapped in a security blanket. Pushing you to the brink like a disastrous meditation, cacophonous saxophone, noise-rock-inspired guitar, and tape loops, ensure Thresher gives a unique take on improvised music.
