Published Mar 01, 2017Owen Pallett has announced that he's completed some new music — and he's ready to give fans a glimpse of what he's been working on at an upcoming show.
Pallett will play Toronto's Great Hall on April 8, and the Polaris Music Prize-winning performer is promising a set of almost entirely new songs. He teased the fresh material on Twitter, revealing that while there won't be any synths involved, there will be guitar and violin. And as for sheets of distortion? "Oh, yes yes."
