Genre – Rock
Label – Indie
Stand Up and Say No is an Indie Rock band founded by singer/ songwriter, Andre Nault, along with Mireille Nolet. The band will be releasing their newest EP, “Assuming Loyal” tomorrow, and I was asked to do a pre-release review of the four song EP.
The first single from the EP is the first track, “Can You Feel?” which was released on April 7th, as well as the video for it, released on April 21st, you can see the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kv72kMycZ5k I can see why this song was chosen as the first single, as it was my favourite on the EP, and caught my attention immediately.
The other song that stuck in my head is the last song on the EP, “We Push Through”, which has a more “stripped down” feeling, and it’s a nice change to all the recent releases which are over exaggerated with synth and all these effects being added to voices. Andre has a unique sound to his voice, and an obvious natural skill when it comes to songwriting and performing.
If you are in the Toronto area on May 6, be sure to stop by Rancho Relaxo for their debut at this year’s Canadian Music Week festival at 9pm! And also be sure to check out the EP tomorrow on iTunes!
