Four piece indie/rock band Boy With An Atlas consists of Riley Ducharme, Spencer Jones, Annette Amenta, and Stewart Crocker. Hailing from Hamilton, Ontario, the band released their EP ‘A Night In The City’ on September 11th. The five track release includes previously released single ‘Already Started’ which came out earlier this year in July.
At first listen I would have said that “Overflow” was my favourite song on the EP, but each time you listen to the songs you find something new to love and appreciate. “Overflow” has very strong vocals with matching backing instruments which is what drew me to the song at first. After listening to the EP more than once, “Lover’s Game” took over as my favourite song. It’s slower compared to the other four songs but the simple acoustic guitar throughout most of the song is beautifully played and matches the harmonies perfectly. It gives the EP a nice ending and balances out the rest of the songs with more pronounced vocals and instruments.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from the EP as I had only heard the previously released single beforehand but I was pleasantly surprised. You’ll need to listen to the EP more than once to appreciate the work that went into it.

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.
