Published Aug 18, 2011Vancouver's Rococode feature no shortage of Canadian indie talent: singer/keyboardist Laura Smith is a former member of Said the Whale, while Johnny Andrews and Shaun Huberts make up Tegan and Sara's live rhythm section. Having spent the year gigging regularly, the group are now getting ready to release their debut album. Entitled Guns, Sex and Glory, it's due out February 7, 2012.
The LP was produced by Mother Mother's Ryan Guldemond, along with the band's own Andrew Braun, and mixed by John Congleton (Modest Mouse, St. Vincent, Black Mountain). A press release promises that the tunes will be "equal parts arty and accessible, sexy and sweet, badass and beautiful."
You can preview the sound by listening to the songs "Empire" and "Weapon" below. These two tracks have been pressed on a seven-inch single that is available now. Listen to the punchy, atmospheric songs below.
Rococode are currently top 20 finalists in the PEAK Performance Project. Look for them to tour in October. In the meantime, see a small selection of British Columbia tour dates below.
