Zerbin, Good For Grapes and Paul Kuzbik at Vangelis
May 2, 2014 @ 10:00 pm
Touch (EP) encapsulates the lead-up to Edmonton/Victoria-based ZERBIN’s anticipated sophomore record (coming 2014). It sits in the moment between two frames of film, a superimposing of what’s been and what is about to be. “Take Your Heart” and title track “Touch” are marked by a straightforward stadium rock sound that’s reminiscent of UK’s alt-rock pioneers – a sound that epitomized Zerbin’s early aspirations. However, songs like the fan favorite “Lift” and chart-rising “New Earth” open up a more accessible side of the band; one that embraces both anthem and whimsy.
Good For Grapes formed in September of 2010, after a group of friends took a trip to Victoria, BC for some modest busking. Drawing unexpected crowds, this young and aspiring band took form; an original and talented six-piece group, with an array of harmonizing voices and instruments. Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, this folk / alternative act has been gaining momentum ever since they stepped into the music scene. Their live stage performance has evolved into an incredibly active, folk stomping, and inviting energy; always resulting in an extremely enthusiastic and involved audience. Beginning by supporting charities and foundations, their unique folk sound has been accepted into a large variety of venues. Through this, they have gained a loyal fan base, which grows at every turn.
