NEW WEST

Fri 23 Aug
NEW WEST

Winner of the 2024 Breakthrough Group of the Year award at the latest Juno Awards (the Canadian equivalent of the Brits), this Toronto collective is making waves, but without any hint of pretension from its four members. Gently and with finesse, this quartet introduces itself with tracks that can melt even the hardest of hearts. Kala Wita, Vella, Ben Key, and Noel West have what attracted us so much to early Coldplay: humble but resplendent melodies, a warm, coaxing bass and treble voice, instrumental finesse, and songwriting of rare richness. Released at the end of 2023, their album Based on a True Story serves as an introduction and makes us want to delve deeper into their work in person.
