Only two days remaining in our Countdown to KOI Music Fest, which takes place in Kitchener, ON on September 25-27. Over the last few days we have featured some of the awesome talent that will be featured at this years’ festival, such as Harbour, Bitter Kids and Scott Moffatt. Now let’s talk about St. John’s, NL based band, Repartee.
I was able to ask the band a series of questions, and now it’s your turn to see what they had to say! Also, if you’re able to attend KOI Music Fest, you should. In fact, we will have a writer there, so either way, you’ll get your KOI coverage! Until then, enjoy our Q&A with Repartee.
First off, can you tell us a bit about yourself?
We’re a synth-pop band from St. John’s Newfoundland. We love to bring a ton of energy to our live shows and we’ve toured across the country several times in the last few years.
You will be playing KOI Music Festival this month, which is quickly becoming known as one of the fastest growing indie music festivals in Canada, how does it feel to play at this festival?
It’s really exciting. We’re super pumped to play the same festival as a lot of amazing bands – some we know already, lots we’re looking forward to seeing for the first time!
Is this your first time playing at KOI Music Festival?
For someone who has yet to see you perform live, what can be expected?
A lot of our music is upbeat so we like to create a big dance party with everyone in the room.
Do you have a favourite song that you like to perform live?
Well we’re just finishing a new record so some of the newer songs are really exciting for us to play right now.
You’re going to be sharing the stage with some great Canadian acts, are there any in specific that you are most excited to see?
We love July Talk and fellow east-coaster Rich Aucoin.
What’s up next for you?
Putting out a new album early next year! And touring some more.
How can people find out more about you? What are your social media platforms?
Last but not least, is there anything you’d like to say to the readers?
Follow us on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook for news on our new record!
