Mystery Lover is an indie/emo band formed in 2017 in Victoria, BC, Canada. After a year and a half of existence, which included an appearance on the Capital Ballroom stage at Rifflandia 2018, a BC Summer tour and close to 30 shows, they are set to release their debut LP “The Death Of Young Love”, May 4th, 2019. Recorded at Fat Dad Studios with producer Alex Bodman, and mastered by Ryan Schwabe (Hop Along, Modern Baseball, Algernon Cadwallader), the album is a both passionate and meditative, profoundly searching testament to the need for meaning and catharsis in the wake of what was a profound loss of romantic, personal and spiritual innocence.

Trying to fully feel through and make sense of the deep well of meaning and emotion that rushed into the void after the end of a deeply intertwined 5 year relationship, to try to fully understand and put to rest an old way of loving for good, and to process all that through the vessel of song, was the project at hand for songwriter Jonathan Amor.

Mystery Lover’s sound (given the invented genre designation of "Mystic Emo") calls on a diverse array of influences such as The Hotelier, Death Cab for Cutie, Bon Iver, Modest Mouse, Mount Eerie, American Football, Japandroids, and Leonard Cohen and is informed by sonic and poetic explorations of Eros/romance, archetypal symbolism and myth, their local urban and natural spaces and an oceanside view of churning emotional waters.

Hailing from Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, WIDE EYED is one young new band in thrall to the sonic grandeur of the classic shoegaze template. Blending inspiration from such as Talk Talk, Pixies, Radiohead and Pink Floyd with the wall-of-sound approach of shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive, WIDE EYED is Nanaimo’s most emotionally affecting new outfit. Loping and strident guitar riffs, hypnotic rhythms, psychedelic swells and soul-stirring melodies collide in a maelstrom of volume and measured distortion for a massive, beautiful noise.
