Release Date – January 30th, 2015
Genre – Rock
The Spare Me’s are a rock duo from Toronto. Made up of Frza and Rico, their EP ‘Nothing Happening Here’ was released earlier this year in January and was mixed and mastered by James Cain of Unprofitable Records. Not only are they at work on their second EP, but they have upcoming shows at Sneaky Dee’s on April 24th with Anchor Shop and at Rancho Relaxo on May 5th as a part of the Two Way Monologues/Indiemachine Canadian Music Week Showcase.
The EP is a short but sweet three song release. The title track has instrumentals reminiscent of classic rock from years ago paired with vocals that could be a bit louder but are nonetheless pleasing to listen to. “Disappear You” starts off much faster than the previous song and keeps up the pace, making you nod your head along. The closing song, “Jukin” is a slower song that again shows roots from influences in heavier rock.
Overall the EP, although short, is great for those who enjoy rock of any variety and I highly enjoyed it. Even if you’re not sure if you would like the EP or not, head over to their Bandcamp where you can pick it up for free.
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.
