Stylistic experiments among the four members of Heaps (Warren Frank, Freddy Kwon, Tanner Pare, Luke Shauf) marries earnest synthetic discovery with dense analog tradition. The result is an eclectic, rhythmically swelling collection of observations in the form of their upcoming debut full length, What Is Heaps.
Lead single, “Softly,” is a dynamic alt-rock anthem with experimental, ethereal flourishes.
Heaps, in another melodic lifetime, were known as The Kents. In that collective, they were featured on Hockey Night In Canada, MLB’s World Series, 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, Canada’s Walk Of Fame Emerging Artist and earned radio support from CBC, including George Stroumboulopoulos. Through their travels, they shared stages with Sloan, The Sheepdogs, The Trews, The Strumbellas and Hollerado. Their final release, Within Waves, elevated them beyond 5-million Spotify streams.
