Contrary to their name, the Albertans formed not in Alberta but the province next door, British Colombia. However while they reside in Vancouver, this excellent indie pop five piece came from a myriad of locales across Canada and even the U.S. and spent their early days as a band touring the roads of North America in a propane-fueled short bus. A rough journey that would take them all the way to New York to record and back to Vancouver again. Which brings us to now and the vibrant album they just released this month titled New Age! The albums flagship single "The Wake" is a fantastic indie pop gem with a hell of a hook. Glad I stumbled upon these guys (and girls), think they will definitely find their niche.
