Solids to Release "Blame Confusion" on February 18
Fri, 24 Jan 2014 13:39:48
Liquids or solids? Montreal guitar and drum duo Solids will see their debut album, Blame Confusion, released on February 18 via Fat Possum Records. Formed by Xavier Germain-Poitras (guitar) and Louis Guillemette (drums), Solids have been built on the premise that melody never shines as much as when it is forced to fight its way through many layers of distortion and feedback.
Influenced by bands from the '90s, like Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr. and Superchunk, they string together chaotic choruses under the banner of their intense rock.
