Indie Pop Band Looking For Synth/Electronic Musician (Toronto)

Us

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

We have spent a few years playing in Toronto as a guitar-based indie rock band. Since we lost our lead guitarist, we’re looking to reshape our music into a more synth based sound.

Influences:
Animal Collective
Mac DeMarco
Tame Impala
Sufjan Stevens
Brian Wilson
(Old) Weezer
Two Door Cinema Club
Iron And Wine
Alabama Shakes
The Kooks
Jack White
Pixies


Here's our demo from six years ago. Unfortunately this demo was recorded when most of us were just out of high school so it no longer reflects our sound or skill level all that well. 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 synth player
-You should like indie music
-You should be able to compose electronic accompaniment in DAWs
-Being able to sing backup would be an asset
-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!
