They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

Recent Kill Rock Stars signees They Shoot Horses, Don't They? are one of the weirdest and most exciting bands I have heard in recent memory. This Vancouver septet is an art pop sensory overload complete with a 3 piece horn section, wild synths, and AIH-esque full band shouts. Is that enough to get you interested? How about this?

PopMatters says...
"It's not that often you come across a band that puts a shit-eating grin on your face so wide that you're able to swallow all the bullshit and lies and deceptions of the 21st century and still have room in your mouth for love and happiness and forgiveness. Yet that's exactly the kind of "root-a-toot", pie-faced smile you get when you listen to They Shoot Horses Don't They, a fresh-faced young band from Vancouver, BC. Plain and simple: This band is better than every other band on earth, even if you combined all the other bands on earth into one gigantic band -- this band would still be better than that band."

Their debut on Kill Rock Stars, Boo Hoo Hoo Boo, is scheduled for release on February 21st!
