Vancouver, BC based cinematic new wave band, Gang Signs is made up of Peter Ricq, Adam Fink & Matea Sarenac. The band has released their debut full-length album entitled “Geist” today via File Under: Music. The album is made up of ten tracks, including the single, “Mate” which starts us off on the right track.
The sixth song, “Back Up” was the one that quickly caught my attention; it has a very mellow tone that has the ability to put you in a relaxed state. I enjoyed the vocals on this one, and the music that accompanied it makes a superb track.
I will be the first to say that this is not my typical style of music, but don’t let that fool you, I enjoyed every moment of it. Gang Signs has a very unique mixture of genres, such as Rock, Electronic, new wave and more. I recommend you all give this album a chance; you may very well enjoy what you hear!
