Vancouver indie band, The Good In Everyone, released their self-titled EP on April 18th. The band includes Nick Russell (guitars, vocals), Laura Genchorek (piano, synth, vocals), Benjamin Mott (guitar), Jamison Gladysz (drums), Olivia Sharp (guitar, vocals), and Matt Gostelow (bass). The short, four song release shows off both male and female lead vocals giving the band a sound that isn’t very common these days.
The first song, “Manning Park”, is a male led song. I love when piano is used in songs, so the introduction to the song already had me liking the song. “Skip Down The Stairs” is a female led song with a quicker feel to it than the opening song. “Whiskeyjack”, another male led song is a slower song compared to the two previous ones, but still overall a good song. Finally, the last song, “Shambolic”, also a male led song, would be a great song to have on a road trip somewhere warm in the summer to speed down the road with the top on the car down.
All in all, the EP has that characteristic indie rock sound with the unique female and male vocals. If you like the genre, you should give this EP a listen because there is sure to be something in it for you.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
