Montreal, QC based alt pop band, Elyse & The Affair is made up of singer/songwriter Elyse Robineault, along with guitarists Karine Tremblay & Sebastien Savoie, bassist Dom Fortin and drummer Sergio Caluori. The band has released their sophomore EP entitled “There Soon” on April 30, 2015.
“There Soon” features five full length tracks, starting off with “Hideout” which is one of my favourites, with a strong energy which Elyse evokes in her vocals. In this track, I can see that the band has a strong influence from 90’s rock.
The other song that stood out to me was the third track, “Fame”. I found myself singing along with this song almost immediately and thoroughly enjoyed the high energy sound that each instrument possesses. Elyse offers up some strong feminine vocals that work perfectly. I feel as if I have been transported back to the 90’s, and I’m okay with that!
