Genre: Garage pop
Release Date: January 19, 2015
The Pink Flowers are a garage pop duo based in Toronto, Ontario. The duo is formed by Ryan Faist and Nolan Bennett. In 2014, they released two mixtapes online. They released their EP entitled “Joy” on January 19, 2015 through Soundcloud. The release consists of three tracks including the single “Kids.”
After listening to “Joy,” it is a solid release. The opening track “Kids” is the most upbeat track while the second and third (“Wallflower” and “Agnosia”) slow down the tempo. I liked the blend of vocals and instrumentals. I found it interesting that the album was recorded in a garage – it simply sounds really good. The album overall is enjoyable to listen to. My favourite track, however, is “Kids.” I recommend checking out the track and video for “Kids” first. If you like it, check out the rest of the EP on Soundcloud.
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.
