The Long Winter
Back in 2015, Mick Southerland wrote us about Lucha and their first release, an EP titled The Long Winter.
Forgive the long wait, but it is worth it.
If I had to describe the work of this band in just two words, I would use “refreshingly different”. If I had to assign them to a genre, which I hate doing, I might go with avant-garde. Galaxxies describes themselves as “experimental, alternative/indie pop music”. Regardless of how one would describe them in terms of genre, their music is great. While it could certainly fit into the genres mentioned, I think the most important thing to say about their style and music is that it has a unique and wonderful sound.
Galaxxies is a Canadian duo that has no shortage of creativity. They also take full control of every aspect of their work’s realization. Garrett Gengler is involved in every step of the project including web design, video and cover art. Marcile Wilmot is the other half of the project and she takes writing credits and brings her Jamaican upbringing to the table as well. It shows in their music, their album art and even their well done covers.
The Galaxxies EP is a great five song collection. Each of the tracks are unique and different. All of the track are well produced and share only the commonality of being great music. Frankly, it was difficult to decide on what tracks to include in this podcast. I went with Galaxies, Love Ain’t True, and Slow Time.
