Archaics @ A Taste of Edmonton Churchill Square
Friday, July 28 at
1 Sir Winston Churchill Square
Archaics are a five-piece psychedelic art-rock band from Edmonton, Alberta. Their experimental tastes create a cavorting atmosphere that accompanies one through thoughts of kaleidoscopic hysteria; a tangible swing from a twisted frame of mind.
Their most recent album, Soft Focus (2016 - Sweetie Pie Records) is carefully orchestrated, displaying the chemistry developed over nine years of playing together. Last year’s addition of organist Dylan Greenhough and the incorporation of visual projections has transformed the core band to a full-bodied live experience.
“Archaics [Soft Focus] as a whole come off as scruffier, clangier and more mystical — not to mention more tangential! — than their ’60s predecessors”. - Sandra Sperounes - Edmonton Journal July 2016
The past three years have consisted of notable presence and recognition within the Canadian arts community with opening slots for bands such as The Dandy Warhols, SUUNS, Dead Meadow, Destruction Unit, and L.A. Witch. Actively introducing their caravanning circus to curious ears, the band has completed two tours across Canada and performed at festivals including Big Winter Classic, Vancouver Psych Fest, and Golden West Music Fest.
Archaics consists of Connor Snell (Vox, Guitar), Josh Beatty (Vox, Guitar), Andy Trant (Drums), Dylan Greenhough (Organ, Vox), and Peter Masson (Bass)More Event Details
