PHOTOS: Casper Skulls Live at Swan Dive (SXSW)

Knowing, that Canada is home to a lot of fantastic acts and some who we like very much, we didn’t want to miss the Canadian Blast at Swan Dive. Without having chosen a particular band, we simply went there Friday afternoon, when Toronto-based Casper Skulls just started their set. I absolutely loved them from the spot! Maybe my favorite discovery of this year’s festival. Two guitars, female and male vocals, bass, drums, melodic indie rock with shoegazy, fuzzy influences what’s not to love?

Although barely a year old, it’s not surprising that the quartet consisting of Neil Bednis (vocals, guitar), Melanie Gail St-Pierre (guitar, vocals), Fraser McClean (bass), Chris Anthony (drums) already got signed! To Buzz Records that is.

Follow Casper Skulls on Facebook and Bandcamp and go see them live when they play The Glove in Brooklyn on April 14, more info here.
