We are Bombnivores, a band based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Two music nerds who like way too many bands.
From Irregular Dreams
Halifax is known is a major regional music centre, but one would hardly expect something as coolly modern, slick and groove-based as Bombnivores. Even more impressive is that it all comes from the minds of two individuals: Jamie Larade (drums, samples, bass) & Sheldon Kelly (vocals, keys, bass.)
Kelly’s soft vocals ease into your soul by osmosis, while Larade’s percussion keeps things grounded. Songs like “Watching the Heat Curve” could simply float off into the ether but the nice, fat rhythm section keeps your toes tapping on Earth.
Killer track: “Sunset Splitter”
In Tension Album Review
If you're looking for music that stands apart from crowded sonic trends without sacrificing tunefulness, Halifax's Bombnivores are dealing in just what you need. In Tension, the duo's third release, is bursting at the seams with ambition and restless inventiveness drawn from an impressively wide sampling of influences.
Get to Know Bombnivores
Bombnivores are Jamie Larade (drums, samples, bass) & Sheldon Kelly (vocals, keys, bass.) They are childhood friends from Nova Scotia who began collaborating from a shared love of music and the obscuring of it's boundaries. Starting off in 2013, their sound was eclectic & sample-based. They became focused on fusing electronic with acoustic.
Their new album 'In Tension' avoids genres while embracing the progressive experimentation & harmony of their many influences (Radiohead, Bjork, Broken Social Scene, Flying Lotus, Half Moon Run, The Meters, Machinedrum, Patrick Watson... the list goes on...)
For all the music that has affected them over the years, they seek to pay homage via creation with an album that sways like a mixtape, blurring lines between IDM & post-rock, between the melodic & the abstract, between the groove & the mood.
Artistic ascension is key and 'In Tension' is a wave to be heard from these east coast shores.
