Ex-Arcade Fire/Unicorns Members Prep Debut as Clues
That Metric/Tokyo Police Club/Dears/Sebastien Grainger tour not enough Canada for you? Try Clues, a new band formed by ex-Arcade Fire man Brendan Reed and ex-Unicorn Alden Penner, along with a few of their Montreal pals.
Clues have been simmering in their hometown for a minute, playing here and there and starting a music-hocking website, but they are ready to make their full-length debut with an album scheduled to come out via Constellation Records in April. No word on a title or tracklist yet, but you can sample a tune called "Perfect Fit" in MP3 form below.
Clues also have a short East Coast tour kicking off in New York City on election night. Excellent timing, ya Canadians!
