Ophelia Syndrome, a band who take their name from a popular a condition where you fall in love with a mad Danish prince and then drown 'accidentally'.
The record, fully funded by fans, combines traditional rock and jazz foundations and layers cello, lap steel guitar, keyboards and more over top. Add in gorgeous vocals and you have a warm sound that is both dynamic and lush.
I wish I had heard it a little sooner. If I had it may very well have squeaked into my Best Canadian Albums of 2011 list.
