TUNE Calpurnia - City Boy
Calpurnia's story is how teenage rock dreams are meant to unfold: four friends, all raised on a healthy diet of the Beatles, Nirvana and David Bowie, and a deep love for their respective instruments, retreat one day to a basement and begin jamming together. They cut their teeth on some cover songs and then, with just enough confidence and a dose of adolescent enthusiasm, they write and record their own tunes. And the results are nothing short of stunning. "It was kind of destined to be," Finn Wolfhard says of the almost serendipitous genesis of the rough-and-tumble Vancouver-based indie-rock foursome he formed with three of his now-closest friends. "We all just really clicked. And when I'm passionate about something," the singer-guitarist adds of Calpurnia, who this summer release their self-titled debut EP via paradYse/Transgressive (UK/Europe) and Royal Mountain (US/Canada), "I like to get it done as quickly as I can. There's not a lot of wasting time. I love just going for it. Go big or go home."
Calpurnia will be touring this summer in support of the EP including the recently announced Royal Mountain Music Festival at Raspberry Farm in Ontario where they will share the stage with Mac DeMarco, Dizzy, U.S. Girls and more.
