Genre: Electronica
Release Date: November 12, 2014

Vague Notion is an electronic band from Nelson, British Columbia. Vague Notion consists of Cheryl Janzen on vocals, synth, and flutes and Bevan Early on guitar, drums, synth programming, and production. The duo released their debut self-titled album on November 12, 2014 on Bandcamp.

When listening to “Vague Notion,” I was immediately drawn to the instrumentals. They are well done and tie in nicely to the occupying vocals. The lyrical content and angsty vibe within the tracks are the ‘icing on the cake’ for me. It is a well orchestrated album.

The songs standing out the most on the release of “Vague Notion” are “Mirror” and “More Than We Know.” It is, however, a solid album in its entirety.

If you are a fan of electronica music, I would definitely take a listen to Vague Notion’s self-titled debut release. If you want a ‘taste’ of the album first, however, check out the video for “Human Love Song” at

Rating: 3/5

Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
