- Location of Marianas Trench: the depths of Vancouver (when they’re not touring, that is)
- Songs you might know: “All To Myself,” “Haven’t Had Enough,” “Stutter”
- Song you didn’t know you know: “Call Me Maybe,” which Marianas Trench frontman Josh Ramsay co-wrote with former tour-mates Carly Rae Jepsen and Tavish Crowe
- Song you should know: “One Love” from 2015’s Astoria, a song that Ramsay describes as “so lyrically candid I’m actually nervous; it’s like someone reading your diary.”
- Speaking of Astoria: It’s a concept album of sorts inspired by coming-of-age ’80s movies (The Goonies in particular), New Wave giants Depeche Mode and The Eurythmics, and a tumultuous period in Ramsay’s life marked by illness, heartbreak, and feverish creativity.
- A snapshot of the creative process: Ramsay and company in a Gastown apartment plastered in ’80s movie posters, dressed in leather pants and tank tops, pretending to be ’80s rockers while experimenting with vintage gear
- How the the band describes the finished product: “Unapologetically cinematic, constantly surprising and featuring lush orchestral textures that segue seamlessly into spare, but powerful songs.”
Walk Off the Earth
- When you first met them: in 2012 when their YouTube cover of Gotye’s “Somebody I Used to Know” went from viral to epidemic thanks to their innovative approach—five people playing one guitar
- When Gotye met them: the same time you did, prompting him to call the band “hilarious and brilliant”
- What happened next: they signed to a major label, a thrilling feat for a band that had been making eclectic indie music and clever videos of cover songs since 2006
- How they racked up even more fans: with their debut EP, R.E.V.O, which features the infectious, reggae-tinged single “Summer Vibe”
- Their latest: 2015’s Sing It All Away, which brims with whimsy, adventure, tightly knit harmonies, and instruments ranging from ukuleles and glockenspiels to kazoos and duct tape
