Us

We are an indie pop group currently composed of a 25 y/o vocalist/rhythm guitarist/songwriter, a 27 year old bass player, a 24 y/o drummer, and a 31 year old keyboardist looking for a lead guitarist. We've performed shows all over Toronto and we are looking to start recording a demo soon. We love having fun but we are also very dedicated and ambitious.

Influences:
Brian Wilson
(Old) Weezer
Two Door Cinema Club (especially their catchy guitar lines!)
Iron And Wine
Alabama Shakes
Mac DeMarco
The Kooks
Jack White
Pixies

Our sound has been compared to The Smiths and "Weezer if they were indie and also somehow got started in the 60's".

Here's our demo from five years ago that unfortunately does not offer a great representation of our current sound or level of experience: https://theinanimates.bandcamp.com/album/into-the-dark-night


You

-You should be committed to practicing every week and to playing live gigs.
-You should be a very competent guitar player.
-You should be able to compose your own guitar parts in an indie style
-You should be able to sing backup
-You should have your own equipment or be willing to consistently rent equipment

Scheduling an Audition
In order for us to schedule an audition with you, please send us a demo consisting of one or more tracks that clearly demonstrates your ability. We will not consider the recording quality of the tracks but they must show your compositional and technical skill. It would be much easier for us to hear whether our sounds would mesh if at least one of the tracks is indie. If you do not have any indie recordings, we recommend that you download the song "Angela" from our demo that is very much in progress (which can be found here: https://soundcloud.com/the-inanimates-162502400/angela-demo-sans-lead/s-7FX0P), record over it, and send us the results.



Text Adam at show contact info if you're interested. Do not hesitate to ask questions about anything on this ad or anything at all.

We look forward to hearing from you!
