When in Toronto this summer to see a couple of shows by Theo Tams, I also managed to see another Canadian act who opened for Theo, StereoGoesStellar. I went into the first show with nary a clue about the band, but left three shows later with a strong appreciation for their skills. I purchased their self-titled debut album, which I found to be chock-full of power Pop-Rock, great charm, and some fond memories a three great shows. I mentioned them not long after my return from Canada here.
Well, Sean McLeod, Erik Stenlund, Iain Kennedy, Keith Howlett, Mick Di Maio and Jeremy Coulter have released the official video for their latest single, Eighty Eight Keys. I have fond memories of the song live, and found it lost none of that charm on record. While maintaining a strong Pop/Rock sound, you can certainly pick up a Punk influence, with the tempo and attitude of the band. There is a cool feeling with the song of a vehicle picking up speed, nearing out-of-control but never quite crossing the line. The video, which features a Canadian cable access personality Greg Daker, adding to the underground feel. Enjoy!
