Let Me Introduce You To… Scanners

One of my new favourite tracks is “Salvation” by Scanners. Scanners? Never heard of them before? Well, then, let me introduce you to them! The band from London, England, was formed in 2004.

Let Me Introduce You To… My Man!

It’s difficult for a band from Toronto to make a name for themselves (outside of The Big Smoke, anyway) yet My Man has done just that; carving a special place for themselves in the Toronto music scene through their use of catchy riffs and melancholic lyrics. The four piece indie-folk

Let Me Introduce You To… Turbo Fruits

I came across the band Turbo Fruits for the first time in 2010, when they supported Band of Skulls, my favourite band. It was a very grey and cold day and the people in the audience were quite bored and not very happy. However, things changed, when Jonas Stein (vocals,
