Bend Sinister seem to almost revel in their ability to confound listeners and industry types throughout Canada. They churn out blisteringly fast prog-influenced songs, followed by chirpy and cheerful Beach Boys-soaked melodies. They are the kind of musicians who have both Hall & Oates and Iron Maiden in their vinyl collections, and are not afraid to admit any influence or try any new sound. For the last three years, the band has been a tornado of activity on the Canadian music scene. Since 2008 they have released two EPs and one full-length album. Their most recent single, “Things Will Get Better” (produced by Howard Redekopp), was added to commercial radio stations across Canada and reached #2 on the CBC Radio 3 chart. They have been invited to perform at a plethora of festivals across Canada, and have acted as tour support for Metric, Hot Hot Heat, Dragonette, Born Ruffians, Minus the Bear, and We Are Scientists.
