The Soiree: "Marathons" (EP review)

Marathons is the new 6-song EP from Ottawa band The Soirée.

The group have an interesting sound that combines roots rock with power pop.  Lilting pianos and some playful guitar noodling are the feature attractions, but there's always a little room for xylophone (or is it glockenspiel) and other quirky instruments.

Add solid hooks and you've got a concoction that should appeal to fans of bands like Jukebox The Ghost.

The EP is available for free download here.

Check out the track "While We're Awake" here:

Verdict: Buy It
