There are times when all you need is that good old acoustic pop rock to help make your day right. Trench Town Oddities is a five piece crew that strives to make just that happen by providing you with some feel-good, relaxing folk pop music to enjoy. The band have been together since 2006 and already released several great EPs.
This Cornwall crew not only records their own songs but is also a ‘party band’. Playing cover songs from various artists like Jack Johnson, Sublime and even fellow Canadian, Alanis Morissette, the band is slowly gaining ground in their local hometown. Days & Nights is a 6-track EP filled with some ready-to-listen original songs. The cuts are light and fun to listen to if you simply don’t want to think about anything else other than having a good time.
Trench Town Oddities is made up of Sean Harley (lead vocals & guitars), Nick Kalil (bass & vocals), Steve Restinetti (guitars & vocals), Todd Harrington (drums & percussion), and Randy Lalonde (percussion & drums). Since their inception, they’ve shared the stage with tons of great acts including Sum41, Kim Mitchell, April Wine and Glass Tiger, just to name a few.
Most of their songs are upbeat. Blending easy listening acoustic pop with folk rock. Track like, Never Let You Fall, is a familiar old ditty you’ll most likely hear on your regular radio station. It’s a catchy acoustic pop love track that you can leave playing for a while. On the other hand, Working Again, is perhaps one of the more popular tracks the crew have. It features nice and clean vocals along with an easy-to-love beat. The lyrics are simple but sound sincere. The boys step it down a notch in, Road Less Traveled, providing listeners their serious side in this slow and melodic track.
Overall, Days & Nights is a record to watch out for. It’s songs reflect a familiar and loved indie pop vibe. Vocal and instrument work are pretty good, too. Plus, the songs are quite catchy. And although certain tracks might take some time, eventually they all will be playing back in your head before you know it!
