Toronto’s Ev Ree Wuhn have been dormant as of late, so it makes sense that they will be releasing their first full length later this year. As a teaser for things to come, the trio have released the atmospheric and glitchy double A-side single above, featuring guest vocals from Devin Wilson of Bravestation and some pretty damn neat bleeps and bloops. We’re definitely intrigued, and will be keeping our ears alert for any new developments moving forward.

Vancouver’s Rococode are a haunting electropop duo that do all the things we love, making unabashed pop music that remains dark and restrained. Their first single since 2012’s Guns, Sex & Glory, “Banks” is a brilliant new direction, and features a fantastic melody backed by a deep synth-bass groove.

Video: Brave Shores – Never Come Down

Posted on October 21st, by arp2600 in Video

Our friends in Tony Ho have sneakily gone and directed one of the best videos of the year. Featuring brother sister duo Brave Shores with one of the catchiest indie-pop songs we’ve heard this side of Icona Pop, the Toronto sketch troupe have created a colourful world of awesome hair and beautiful people. Keep your eyes peeled for a brief a cameo from Roxanne, Silent Shout’s own resident artist as the girl with the bubble gum.

Video: Princess Century – Palace

Posted on October 20th, by digits in Video


Oh, it’s always so nice to be reminded how mindblowingly amazing Princess Century is. Lossless, one of the best albums of last year, was full of great (and sinister, and strange) singles. Let’s revisit “Palace,” because she just put out a beautiful new video for it, directed by Cosmotropia de Xam. A chaotic journey from one strange visual to the next, it’s a great way to experience the song.

Lossless is still available on Bandcamp, and it’s still so so so good.

MP3: Antoine93 – The Physical Aspect of Love

New Antoine93 song! Ugh, we love this guy and his alienated alien-pop – the Antoine-verse is a very distinct universe, a very bizarre place where the dance parties are strange but memorable. “The Physical Aspect of Love” is one of his strongest singles yet, and we can’t wait to hear the album that it portends. We can expect Maybe Unlock My Heart in November! Yes!!!

Torontonians, you should catch Antoine93 with Silent Shout faves Ken Park and Mathémathique this Saturday at Double Double Land.

Majical Cloudz have been busy touring with Lorde, bowling over her audiences no doubt. And to celebrate the tour’s end, they’ve decided to rework “Your Eyes,” a track originally on their 2011 debut album. This new version has more direct vocals, and a bigger, more pristine sound. Both versions are excellent! As is anything they do! (As you might recall, Impersonator was our #1 album of 2013.) You can read their heartfelt message to the people they met on tour on their Tumblr.

MP3: Galaxius Mons – Controller Down (feat. Jef Barbara)

“Controller Down” is like a dream we didn’t know we had coming true. Galaxius Mons and Jef Barbara are two underground Montreal pop artists we love dearly, for very different reasons. Galaxius are electropop experimenters of the highest order, and their debut album was our #6 album of last year. And they’ve got none other than Canada’s premier underground pop star Jef Barbara to sing vocals on their latest single, a brass-heavy electrofunk track that pumps like no Galaxius Mons track before it. Blast it out your car stereo!

Galaxius Mons are on tour right now in Ontario and Montreal, including an appearance tonight at Nite Comfort with Silent Shout darlings Petra Glynt, Mekele and Chanteclair. Check out rest of the Galaxius Mons tour dates over at Exclaim.
