SOUR KEY:

KEEPING IT

OFF-KILTER

Toronto has a knack for generating bands with an ear for

distortion.

Sharing members with hardcore, metalcore-adjacent

band Real World, Sour Key is a deliberate change of pace

to try their hand at etheral pop, filtered through the lens

of reverb laden riffs. With Luciano Castilo-Oliva on vocals

and guitar, Lia Lepre on drums, and Noah Aviles-Betel on

bass, Sour Key deliver more than Dinosaur Jr. worship with

a healthy dose of dreamy shoegaze. The band pull from a

melange of eras of alternative rock to ground their sound

in something intimately familiar, while leaving the edges

jagged enough to experiment with off-kilter melodies.

At once, Sour Key are warm and dissonant; perpetually

laid back and purposefully shadowcast, then teeming with

ambition, and gently teasing just enough bright moments

to make out the sun draped behind the clouds.

Perhaps what makes Sour Key so compelling is the

fleeting era they recall; a very specific moment in the

early 2010s when a tiny battalion of people believed in the

groundbreaking capacity of bands like Merchandise and

Milk Music.

Right now, the only way to hear the band is through a

live performance posted on YouTube of the now closed

but beloved punk performance space and record store,

Faith/Void, but stay tuned.
