SWITCHED ON SYNTHS: POP EDITION
FEVERS (Ottawa Indie/SynthPop)
Infectious electro dance-pop to a new level. One of Ottawa's most amazing bands. True synth wizards that can craft perfect pop! Don't miss them in this intimate setting.
DOUCE ANGOISSE (Paris/MTL minimal/darkwave)
Perhaps the most exciting performance at S.O.S.fest 2017. Live drumming, insane vocal performance & infectious backing tracks. Douce covers a lot of ground: geographically, musically. She move from France to Montreal & spent time couple of years in the London electro scene in between. Her infectious brand of minimal electro is always dark with elements of disco & pop blended with full on punk circuit bending madness to create an unholy & transgressive matrimony. Expect a strange and frantic stage show. This performance will without a doubt inspire.
HONEY BEARD (Toronto Synth Pop)
Honey Beard is an Canadian Electronic Dark-Pop duo from Toronto, Ontario. The band have been creating music for some time now drawing on childhood inspirations such as Depeche Mode and The Doors. Honey Beard are renowned for their frenetic live performances injecting their own edgy take on the typical pop arrangements while balancing dark synth sounds with bright catchy beats.
