One of Ottawa’s main exports as far as Canadian indie music goes is Amos The Transparent, a band that has been flying high form the critical acclaim of their first two albums and receiving praise for the most recent release Goodnight My Dear… I’m Falling Apart. Personally, the band has grown on me for a few reasons. First, out of all the music that’s out there, songs or bands appeals to us for various reasons. Sometimes it’s image, catchiness, or lyrics – in the case of Amos, it’s a bit of everything. But to me the most attractive aspect of their music is honesty. The honest composition and delivery of their music is refreshing every time you put on their albums, and none more so than their latest release. Their announcement of festival dates at Pop Montreal and Halifax Pop Explosion affirms that they are serious about making their voices heard across Canada.
Tonight they are set to play Zaphod’s, I’ll be following up this post with a review/interview with the band in collaboration with Apartment 613. In the meantime, here are their tour dates and latest video for “Says The Spark”.
