About The Strumbellas
Teaming up with LA Producer/Engineer, Dave Schiffman (Johnny Cash, Haim, Weezer), the band hunkered down close to home at Toronto’s Lincoln County Social Club to record Hope. With poignant yet sing-along-able lyrics and undeniable rock noir musical undertones, Spirits, the first single from forthcoming album, embodies the essence of what has been attracting fans from across North America to this Lindsay, Ontario-bred band. Exclaim declared that the new single: ”…shows off a polished, poppier side to the group. The acoustic strums of the opening verse are bolstered by a chorus of chiming bells and infectious, sing-along lyrics,” while Confront Magazine stated: “When the hairs stand up on the back of your neck and arms, you know the music is awesome.”
The journey for The Strumbellas has been a whirlwind since the release of the band’s 2012 debut album My Father And The Hunter. The Strumbellas’ sound — haunting lyrics fused with infectious, danceable melodies — won them both fans and critical recognition. A year later, they followed up with We Still Move On Dance Floors, which earned them six awards, including a JUNO and Sirius XM Indie Award, as well as a spot on the Polaris Music Prize Long List.
