Album: The Odds
Release Date: August 24, 2018
Genre: Indie Synth Pop
Toronto indie rockers Sue Newberry & The Law have been receiving praise for their fresh sound and their high-energy live performances since they released their debut EP in 2013 “Shine Shine Shine Shine” – and since then they have gone onto share bills with artists like The Strumbellas, Twilight Hotel, and Hannah Georgas. 2018 marks their latest release The Odds.
The Law consists of Mim Adams (Keys, Vox), Matt Longo (Bass, Vox), Dan Nicks (Synth, Vox), Colin Weadick (Guitar), and Michael Laing (Percussion). Together they have created an album that combines fun with introspection; with thrashing cymbals, sharp harmonies, and lyrics that captivate under the dazzling synthesizers. Newberry’s vocals are ethereal on slow-burning gems like “The Way You Drink”, “Talk”. and title track “The Odds.” You’ll be on your feet for “Static” and “The Kill.” Newberry and The Law have created an intoxicating set of songs set to Florence & The Machine-meets Metric energy and melodies. If that’s your thing, The Odds are you’ll enjoy this one.
Rebecca here- a Niagara native now living and breathing music in Toronto. As a Ryerson journalism graduate and a self-proclaimed music junkie, I’ve been fortunate enough to write for brands like Andpop and Really Records, and now Canadian Beats. My tastes in music are all over the map- Stevie Wonder to Fall Out Boy; Miranda Lambert to One Direction – which is why I spend almost as much money on concerts as I do on rent. But I have no regrets. If you like my ramblings you can also find me on Twitter (RMattina5) & Instagram (rmattina93).
