The Elwins perform live from high-energy record Play for Keeps

Lively Ontario pop quartet The Elwins play three songs from their sophomore record.

Their music has been described as "a brightly burning thing of beauty", and today The Elwins swing through studio q to perform live from their new album Play for Keeps and chat with Friday guest host Gill Deacon. 

The lively Ontario pop quartet gained a lot of attention in 2012 with their bouncy debut LP And I thank you. Now the high-energy, jerk-chicken-loving indie poppers are back on Canadian soil after a whirlwind tour of the U.S., Europe and Asia.
