Genre – Alternative Folk Rock/Indie Rock
Victoria, BC four piece band San Felix consists of Nick, Ian, Mark and Brett. They released their new EP ‘Fire Island’ on April 3rd. The EP, consisting of six tracks, is upbeat and fun to listen to – perfect for those (hopefully) upcoming warm summer night parties.
“I Was A Vulture”, the opening track has a beat that makes you want to dance along. “Silence in Toronto”, one of my favourites off of the EP, starts off a bit slower but builds throughout the song and brings the vocal and instrumental parts together perfectly. “Elderberry”, also a favourite of mine, again starts off slow with just vocals and a bit of guitar, but towards the end gives the song an unexpected twist towards the end. “35 Hours” and “Garden Treasures” are both a bit more upbeat. “Day of the Rat” has a slower beat throughout the song and makes you want to sway along as you listen.
Overall, the EP is well put together and flows nicely from song to song. This was the first I had heard of this band but it won’t be the last, that’s for sure. If you like a folk/indie sounding rock you’ll want to check out this EP.
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.
