half moon run folly and the hunter hue call the office indie undergroundWith just a few days before they go on tour with Mumford & Sons – Half Moon Run (Indie Rock) visit Call The Office. A band who has already opened for Metric and Patrick Watson.

I’ve personally seen the Half Moon Run live a couple times and honestly – They’re great live performers. If i wasn’t in Florida by the time they’ll be on on stage on Thursday I would be right there up at the very front with my drink in one hand, my camera in the other and both my feet set to beat.

Check out each band’s description and music samples below to get a better feel from what to expect on Thursday night.

Half Moon Run
Half Moon Run is a talented young trio from Ottawa, Ontario and Comox, British Columbia. It was in a studio situated in Montreal’s Mile-End district, through the hardships of time constraints and flatlined bank accounts, that the trio bonded and created their unique sound, fusing together the restless elements of indie, pop and folk with beautiful rhythmic harmonies, delicate guitar lines and a hint of warm electronica.

More Samples:
Half Moon Run – “Full Circle”
Half Moon Run – “She Wants To Know”

 

Folly & The Hunter
Folly and The Hunter is an indie folk band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Catchy melodies, multiple harmonies and a subtly crafted mix of acoustic instruments blend to create warm and full compositions. Folly and the Hunter bases its sound in the American folk tradition and pulls inspiration from contemporary indie and post-rock trends, resulting in pop songs that are accessible, yet carry a significant level of emotional and artistic depth.

Another Sample:
Folly & The Hunter – “Cost”

 

Hue
Hue is made up of 3 best friends, a sister, and a bass player. Together they make catchy, fun, upbeat indie pop/rock songs that should leave you humming to yourself long after the show ends.
