Vancouver indie-core/math-pop band Tommy Alto hits Everett Aug 2 at The Wild Hare and Seattle on August 3rd at High Dive.
Tommy Alto; a band from Vancouver, Canada that creates honest, innovative and forward-thinking music.
They strive to keep their songs as enigmatic as they are catchy, combining emotionally engaging vocals with angular guitar riffs, held together by a liberatingly adventurous rhythm section. "Vampire Weekend meets This Town Needs Guns at a Minus the Bear concert" might come close to summing it up.
The group's latest EP "Atlas \\ Patterson" was released independently in June of 2014, and immediately met with rave reviews and contagious underground radio play across North America and the UK.Alongside lively, equivocal and intricate tracks like "Doria" and "Beneath the Rain On a Strange Rooftop", the disc also features more straighforward, yet still multi-faceted and highly textured compositions like “Mountain Top”, as well as “My Heart Is Bigger Than Yours”, a remarkable balancing act between vivacious musicality and bracingly direct storytelling.
The boys are known for being one of Vancouver's hardest-touring independent bands, having shared stages that have belonged to acts like Bastille, Coldplay, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Protest the Hero.
An outfit of Canadian music mavericks who continue to take the scene by storm, Tommy Alto is driven to make passionate, real, and memorable music for many years to come.
