Published Jan 14, 2016After five years of silence filled with jobs, marriages, babies and beyond, Toronto indie darlings the Most Serene Republic returned this year with their fourth album Mediac. Indeed, the group have most definitely matured, and you can hear it in their music.
On December 22, the band revisited their roots for a gig at local haunt the Horseshoe Tavern, and Exclaim! TV caught them during their soundcheck for a pre-show jam of one of their latest tunes, "I Haven't Seen You Around." Adrian Jewett serenades us with his robotic-yet-lovable gaze, while the rest of the decade-old group jam like they've been jamming for, well, a decade. While it may be but a warm-up for the group, it certainly doesn't sound like one.
