It Kills CKDU Lobby, Halifax NS October 22
The emotional depth Halifax's It Kills was able to wade into during their short set was quite something. Sitting in a circle in a tiny radio station lobby, the band's cello, violin, piano, intricate guitar and soft drums worked together in a way that was intuitive and exuberant, and was punctuated with bursts of non-lyrical vocal harmonization. It was a sound that was at once intense and uplifting, and though the unassuming band members displayed an air of ease, the complexity of the work was not to be undersold. It Kills and their feverish, powerful instrumentals are something to watch out for.
