The Boys Who Say No will be making their way to Guelph on March 10th
The Boys Who Say No, one really unique Toronto indie-rock band has released their first album. The name of the band was inspired by the poster of Vietnam draft resistance called “The Girls Who Say Yes To The Boys Who Say No”. Despite being childhood friends, they don’t have a common musical influence and they try to combine their style of music together. This mélange of inspirations has resulted in a really unique and vast variety of music styles.
Their new album “Contingencies” has been through a long period of processing and deals with broad issues like the middle age transformation towards adulthood, foolishness in youthful years and many more.
To those who aren’t a fan of rock music, they should definitely try listening to “You Used to Get Along,” which was the second track on this album. This song speaks to how when we grew up, we notice that we don’t get along with our parents like we did when we were younger. I personally think that this is true and most of the time we fail to realize that when we grew up, our parents grew older as well.
This has been a busy month for The Boys Who Say No as they released their album on iTunes and CD, as well as performing for accompanying release concerts. “Contingencies” became available both on iTunes and CD on February 21st 2012 and the CD became available on February 24th.
Guelph fans will be excited to hear that The Boys Who Say No will be making their way here next month. The show will take place downtown at Jimmy Jazz on March 10th 2012. This is night that you certainly won’t want to miss!
