Sweet Thing - Change Of Seasons


"Where we're going I don't know"

I always like to see a good Canadian band break through. Living where I do, against the B.C. border, I feel very close to Canadians and the Canadian music scene. Sweet Thing are a very exciting new band from the country, a five-piece Toronto group that finds success in a combination of sounds. It's rock, for sure, but with a jagged dance edge, some Queen-style pomp and a great sense of melody. Change Of Seasons is their latest single, a tropical-infused singalong that uses Beach Boys-esque back-up vocals to great effect. The drums and chugging guitar on this are intense, sort of a mini Dog Days Are Over tethered to a light, breezy melody with a soaring, simple hook. I've yet to delve into the album as a whole, but I'm very excited about hearing it based on this and other singles.

Just discovered these guys from the use of their song on "Easy A". And who knew, here I am in Toronto and never heard of them! Going to look for more.
