Vancouver’s up and coming indie band, The Shrugs, are coming to Golden for one show only at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Thursday May 16.
Young, brilliant and unique, The Shrugs are among Canada’s most promising indie-rock acts. The trio made up of Caitlin Connelly (vocals), Brandon Johnas (guitar) and Stephanie Cole (bass), compose emotionally charged songs inspired by hyperactive imaginations, and a passion for creativity.
Their music may reflect their influences, such as Metric and the Arcade Fire, but the band has etched its own distinct mark on their genre.
In 2011 the band hit the studio with critically acclaimed producer Jeff Dawson (Daniel Powter, Kelly Rowland, State of Shock). The result was an EP, Til the World Ends, showcasing the band’s talents, and bringing to light a polished four-song product that truly highlights their unparalleled sound.
Hard work ethic coupled with a strong sense of community inspires The Shrugs to make regular charitable contributions while connecting with their fans on the closest personal level. Exhibiting a strong level of maturity has fueled fan allure, while capturing the attention of a number of industry executives, and charting at number 10 on the Top 10 Most Active Indies Chart in August 2012.
They also participated in the 2012 CFOX Seeds Competition in Vancouver as a Top 20 band, and are continuing their upward climb to major success in Canada’s music industry.
