Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hello there, we are Pedestrian Lifestyle.
We are an ambient post-rock trio from Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Our music is usually spacy and ambient by design, but then gets broken up with firm grooves.
The sound is very atmospheric with an interwoven rock element.
In terms of writing, we are influenced by the sonics of different sounds and the ideas each of us bring to the table. We kind of put things together piece by piece and jam them out, feeding off of each other’s energy in the rehearsal space. It’s very much a live band writing process.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
With the current pandemic going on in the world shows have been put on hold. That being said we will be doing a bit of virtual streamed set at the end of August which will be aired in September. At the moment though we just recently released a new split EP with our friend’s Visions of Doyle entitled “Gorblins” which we are in the midst of promoting via the old internet. We are trying to find new ways to put a spin on things to make up for the fact that live concerts aren’t safe to do right now.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Our song “If I Surrender”. That song showcases all of the elements and fundamentals that make up our band very well and probably best represents our overall sound.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
There are so many great Canadian bands out there but currently, we are digging the new Land of Talk album, METZ, Royal Canoe, F**cked Up, Timber Timbre, Preoccupations, and The Dirty Nil to name a few.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
