They may be called SitDownTracy, but their music will lift you out of your seat.
This young Winnipeg indie band has moved in a whole new creative direction since their debut album Roaring Noon came out in 2009.
Gone is the raw off the floor sound they started out. It's been replaced with intricate multi-voice harmonies and a variety of instruments.
The band consists of Janelle Mailhot, Trevor Graumann, Aaron Zeghers, Matthew Powers and Sean Perkins with guest cellist, Natanielle Felicitas. This time around, the group has endeavoured to capture a more poppier sound, with more complex arrangements that take them to the next level.
SitDownTracy enlisted the help of Ryan McVeigh, who's recorded Boats and the Consumer Goods and mastering producer, Harris Newman. His credits include Arcade Fire and Wolf Parade among others.
Come June, the band is preparing to go out on tour of Central Canada to support the new album.
Saturday, April 21, Winnipeg band SitDownTracy releases their second full-length album called Twenty Something Winters. It all takes place at the Lo Pub starting at 8:00 p.m. The show will also include sets by the Modern Romantics and by Scotch + Tape.
