Hailing from the nation’s capital, Double Experience is a four pieced rock group consisting of Ian Nichols (Vocals), Brock Tinsley (Guitar), Kenny Saunders (Drums), and Tim Kealey (Bass). They will be releasing their second release, and first LP, on August 1, 2014 entitled “721835.” The release consists of nine original tracks, including the singles “Here’s Y” and “Who The Hell?”
When reading that the influences of Double Experience included comic books and video games, I was immediately intrigued. After listening to “721835,” I was not disappointed. The songs are enjoyable to listen to and well written. There is some similarity in sound to Fall Out Boy. My favourite tracks on the album are “Congratulations on Second Place,” “Here’s Y,” and “Strange Acquaintance.”
I recommend checking out “721835” if you enjoy rock music, Fall Out Boy, or simply love the combination of music and gaming/comic books/trading cards/etc. To get a taste of the album prior, check out “Here’s Y” and “Strange Acquaintance”. The latter having a lyric video with the original Super Mario Bros mixed with the track.
Rating – 4/5
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.
