Having released their poignant sophomore record Softer Faces via Kanine Records earlier this year, Candian five-piece Living Hour are eager to share their hypnotic, wistful soundscapes with a European audience as they embark on tour throughout September and October.
Formed in Winnipeg, Canada, Living Hour have a unique ability to create ethereal, atmospheric music combined with emotional vocal performances, innovative guitar harmonies and dreamy brass segments. Blending elements of dream pop, slowcore and psychedelia, Softer Faces is the vision of a band with the capacity to skilfully produce an evocative enchanting ambiance; as imposing as it is alluring.
Consisting of Sam Sarty (lead vocals, keys, trombone) alongside Gil Carroll (guitar), Adam Soloway (guitar, backing vocals), Alex Chochinov (drums, trumpet) and Brett Ticzon (bass, backing vocals), Living Hour’s distinctive sound has gained a number of admirers in the music press and beyond. Softer Faces has already picked up support from the likes of NPR’s All Songs Considered, Paste Magazine, Bandcamp Daily, Stereogum and many more.
Ahead of their European tour, the band will release a video for brooding album track ‘Most’ as well as a visual cut to accompany official single hallboy. After opening for renowned three-piece Duster in the US, Living Hour will begin the European leg of their tour in Prague before making appearances at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, Supersonic in Paris as well as shows in the UK and two final dates in Italy.
Softer Faces is out now via Kanine Records.
