INTERVIEW: Hollow Twin

It was about three years ago when musical seeds were planted to form Hollow Twin.

It was on a rainy September day when Emmalee Watts and Becky Wosk learned that they had much in common, from neighbourhoods to musical tastes. Fast forward to the present, the duo has become a band that is ready to release their second EP Keepers, with a release show at The Hindenburg on April 26th.

TICKET GIVEAWAY: Tove Styrke @ THE MEDIA CLUB – May 16, 2015

The pop songstress got her start on Swedish Idol, releasing her self-titled album shortly afterwards at the age of 18. The album reached platinum status and even received a Swedish Grammy nomination.

LOCAL FANS: JPNSGRLS

In a city like Vancouver, the love of good music is perhaps matched by our passion for hockey.

JPNSGRLS were kind enough to take some time to catch up with us to chat not only about the Vancouver Canucks, but also what they’ve been up to. Their debut album Circulation saw its UK release earlier this week, and the band will be heading on tour in Europe later this month.
