Vic42 is a sophisticated collection of features celebrating the unique and interesting people of Victoria. Head on over to check out their feature on LABS!
Victoria based indie/pop electro-duo, LABS, began as an experiment in 2014 between long term collaborators Lindsay Bryan (vocals) and Adam Sutherland (keys and guitar). The intention was to create stock samples for electronic music producers, however, the demos quickly became full songs and thus, LABS was born.
Drawing influence from acts like St. Vincent and Phantogram, the band’s sound contrasts high-fi to lo-fi analog synth and guitar tones, hooky melodic vocals, big drums and rich bass tones. The band made their live performance debut at Rifflandia 2015, joined by keyboardist, Matt Longpre and drummer, Keenan Murray (both formerly of Victoria’s Sunhawk).
