Published Jan 07, 2014Limber gang of three Dany Laj and the Looks (which is comprised of Laj and drummer Lewis Handford and bassist Jeanette Dowling) have been repping their brand of hook-laden power pop since the release of their debut EP, The Match, back in 2010. But for their recent Exclaim! TV session, the throwback three-piece decided to perform something a bit newer, playing a selection of cuts from 2012's Telepathic Voices EP.
We caught up with the up-and-coming rock act at Toronto's intimate Magpie Taproom where they performed clean-cut renditions of "Mr. Rebound" and the Paul Westerberg evoking "Queen St. West," complete with a squealing solo at the song's climax.
See and hear for yourself by checking out both tracks now in the player below. If you like what you hear, don't forget to catch Dany Laj and the Looks live as they tour across Canada later this January.
