The Aeolian Hall in collaboration with Hamilton, Ontario’s Supercrawl 2017 presents:

The highly anticipated return of extraordinary Montréal talent, KROY as she performs at The Aeolian on Saturday, September 9 in London, ON.

KROY (Camille Poliquin) draws influences from both trip-hop (Goldfrapp, Portishead) and modern pop (Vampire Weekend, Youth Lagoon). Her musical landscape encompasses a universe of hypnotic rhythms and analogue synthesizers.

Set to perform the majestic Aeolian stage with KROY is the colourful five-piece Hamilton, ON glam-band, Persons. And making this night truly shine is the addition of one of London, Ontario’s best bands – dream-pop duo, You’ll Never Get To Heaven. The dreamy pair just released their sparkling 2017 album, ‘Images’ and wrapped up a North American Tour.

Check out music samples from all three artists below:

KROY (Montréal, QC)

KROY

KROY

Extraordinary talent can sometimes lead to an extraordinary life. Camille Poliquin was discovered on the Quebec music scene when she sang backing vocals on David Giguère and Jason Bajada’s albums. In 2012, she proved she had much more to offer than a pretty voice when she wrote her first songs under the alias of KROY.

Her atypical adolescence, spent surrounded by adults, quickly carried over into her songwriting, which is dominated by stories of impossible love. Though these sombre tales were initially fabricated, many of them materialized in Camille’s life over the years, throwing the singer-songwriter into a state of inspired melancholy. Four songs were released on Bandcamp in 2014, and she soon gained attention for her spellbinding voice, with its distinctive, crystal-clear tone. KROY was then dubbed the “next Montreal indie pop sensation” by cultural magazine Voir. She opened for Coeur de pirate and AaRon, in addition to performing on various stages in Quebec, Europe, and the United States.

Then came an encounter that would really change the course of things. Camille met Laurence Lafond-Beaulne, with whom she formed Milk & Bone, a minimalist electro outfit that rapidly made a name for itself in Quebec and abroad. Magazines such as Vice and Libération praised the atmospheric pop of the duo’s first album, Little Mourning.

Between Milk & Bone tours, Camille carries on her solo work influenced by spacey trip-hop (Goldfrapp, Portishead) and inventive modern pop (Vampire Weekend, Youth Lagoon). An “Artist to watch in 2016” according to Noisey, KROY will release her first full-length album on September 23rd under Dare To Care Records. The recording proves to be more eclectic and personal than Camille’s previous work, reflecting her bold and brilliant pop explorations. The first track off the album, River, offers a glimpse of KROY’s musical landscape, a captivating universe where hypnotic electro grooves meet the rich sounds of analog synthesizers.

PERSONS (Hamilton, ON via Montréal, QC)

Persons

Persons

PERSONS is a communal, primal force of glitter, glam and grit that creates high-energy, multimedia performances featuring dancing, video, electronics and live instrumentation.

The music hinges on obscene juxtapositions that pair lush samples with white noise, obscure vinyl melodies with unpalatable digital-age pop textures, danceable beats with rhythmic destabilization.

YOU’LL NEVER GET TO HEAVEN (London, ON)

You'll Never Get To Heaven

You’ll Never Get To Heaven

Canadian ambient-pop duo You’ll Never Get To Heaven have announced the release of their third full-length album, ‘Images’, on March 24th, 2017. Alice Hansen, a classically trained pianist and violinist, and Chuck Blazevic, a studio-obsessed tone-sculptor and monome performer, combine their disparate perspectives to co-curate every element of YNGTH together as equals. After gaining a groundswell of support from fans and critics all over the globe for their 2012 self-titled debut and 2014’s ‘Adorn’, the group caught the attention of indie upstart Yellow K Records (Japanese Breakfast, Eskimeaux) on the strength of their breakout single “Caught In a Time, So Far Away”. The band has partnered with Yellow K for the release of ‘Images’ in a break from their otherwise staunchly independent ethos. While YNGTH has been reclusive in the past playing only a handful of select festival dates, they just played their first European and North American appearances in support of ‘Images’ this past Spring/Summer 2017.
