The Kents -- "Something About Her" (Independent): This young alternative rock band hails from Lindsay, Ontario.
They released their debut EP Waking back in June. Their debut single, "The Stakes," was featured on the iTunes' New Artist Spotlight, Spotify's Viral Hits, Hockey Night in Canada, and notched CBC play as well, as spins on indie88, 102.1 The Edge, Y108, CHOM 97.7 in Montréal, and X92.9 in Calgary.
The group was also a finalist in Canada's Walk Of Fame Emerging Artist competition.
This new single shows that The Kents have real commercial potential. It is catchy, has a nice dynamic range, and suggests a combination of Vampire Weekend and Arkells. It was produced by Derek Hoffman (The Elwins, DCF) with mastering from Dan Weston (Shad, City And Colour).
A band you should definitely keep an eye and ear on.
The Kents play Armouries in Lindsay, ON, on Dec. 23, followed by more gigs in Montréal and Ontario in Jan and Feb. Check dates here
