Published Jun 20, 2012Earlier this year, dance pop duo Humans delivered their Traps EP, which Exclaim! praised for its "brilliant electro steeped in lush percussion." After garnering some attention for the mini-set, the Vancouver group have revealed they'll be taking their tunes out on the road for a quick North American trip this summer.
Humans' sunny tour season starts up tomorrow (June 21) with the first of two performances at Calgary's Sled Island, and the pair will keep up the festival vibe when they arrive at Port Renfrew, BC's Tall Tree Festival on June 23. From there, the act will hook up with Toronto electro pop outfit Young Empires in Whistler, BC, before heading down to the U.S. for a series of shows.
After a few weeks off, Humans will play on Canadian soil at Squamish, BC electronic festival Basscoast on August 5, and wrap up their summer in the same district at the LIVE at Squamish event on August 25.
On top of the tour dates, Humans have also just revealed a new video for Traps track "Horizon." You can dig the clip, which zones in on a shovel-toting seniors outing gone wrong, down below.
