Psychedelic Dreampop
Everything about Winnipeg’s Living Hour has been expanding since their humble basement beginnings in
2015. What started with dreamy love songs inspired by the cinematic sky of their hometown has
transformed into even more sprawling and expansive expressions on their latest effort, Softer Faces due
March 1, 2019.
What started as a quartet is now a quintet, though still led by the smoky, ethereal lead vocals of Sam
Sarty (vocals, trombone, keyboard), who started singing in choirs at a young age. With her strong vocal
backbone, musicians Gil Carroll (guitar), Adam Soloway (guitar, vocals), Alex Chochinov (drums, trumpet,
organelle), and Brett Ticzon (bass, vocals) are able to shine. Three voices, guitar, trombone, brushed
percussion, and boundless effects sees Living Hour pulling from many genres to create their own
sonically diverse and unique vibe.
