Words from Our Mouths
March 31st, 2012
This just in. Guitars have been shredded into little balls of cat fluff. Keyboards have whimpered through tremolo pedals and reverb. We found the perfect theremin synth patch. Yes! We finished our instrumental tracking today for the last three tracks of our upcoming EP, Proud Animal. We also finished up all the vocal leads. We had a big pot of honey around to dampen our vocal chords, and our sausage lunch just about put us over the top. Just a couple of measly background vocals to do, and we are sitting on a big fat mass of tracks that need mixing and mastering. Oh! The manifold processes of recording music! But we are pretty close to our digital release at beginning of May, so stay tuned.
The band has gone through some interesting changes since our first entrance into the universe. We're adding a drummer and a bass player, and are no longer hiding the fact that we really like the sound of 90's rock. Yeah, we're still pretty arty and sensitive, but we've added some serious ballast with fuzz pedals, crashed cymbals, and a bit of grungy emoting. We kind of want you to listen to our music while making out in a Volvo. We still promise you lyrics that care and outbursts of harmonized singing and accordion, but things have taken a turn to be a bit more rocking, and we like it.
In other exciting news, we are going on our first tour next month! ITS will be joining the ReachOut Psychosis Concert Tour to visit high schools in British Columbia. We'll be playing to youth all over Northern BC, and hitting a few night shows along the way. Check out all the news on our calendar.
Hearts, and buckets full of sequins,

Lift-off! Explosions! Excited Yelling! YES!!!
We promised you tracks. And Lo', tracks have arrived. Brace your ears for these tasty morsels. Introducing Advance Tracks from the forthcoming debut EP, "Proud Animal".
Best heard while reclining in a pile of mink. If you don't believe in fur (who can blame you), you may substitute mink with imaginary live mink friends who volunteer to cuddle with you.
Let us know what you think! "Like" it if you do, and shout to us on our FB page.
Welcome to our brand new website! Yes! We exist. There will be things here so shortly. We are currently mixing three advance tracks from our upcoming EP, "Proud Animal". We'll post those here as soon as they're in our greasy little hands.
With a lot of nose wiggling and excitement,
(Gavin Youngash & Barbara Adler)!
