Vancouver, B.C. band Bend Sinister’s newest album, Small Fame, is their first full-length in 4 years. The band formed in 2001, and since then they have churned out blisteringly fast prog-influenced songs, layered with frenetic keyboard riffs, guitar solos, and high energy-pop vocal melodies. As Exclaim comments, the energy on this record “rarely wavers over the course of these 44 minutes and nearly every song is marked by theatrical crescendos and frontman Dan Moxon‘s exuberant singing.” Indie Fuzz says their songs “make you want to dance and sing with a big smile on your face”. The band has been playing at many of the big festivals in Canada, including POP Montreal, Olio Festival and Live at Squamish. On top of that they also have opened forMetric, Hot Hot Heat, and Minus the Bear.
