Fast Romantics have been blurring the lines between indie-rock and old school pop for some time, carving their own unique path.
With their latest record "American Love," the world has begun to pay much more attention to this fast growing Toronto-based band. Led by singer-songwriter Matthew Angus, Fast Romantics have earned a loyal following with their irresistable pop hooks, anthemic live shows, and Angus’ emotive and personal approach to lyricism, often infused with the political and social chaos of the times.
But Angus insists that American Love, produced by the dynamic duo of Gus Van Go and Werner F (Wintersleep, Arkells, Whitehorse) is by no means a political protest record. Rather, it’s a series of reflections on falling in love while hyper-aware of the upheaval occupying the world around him -- especially in America. It’s a duality that is perhaps elevated by geography itself, as the songs were recorded over two years alternating between Brooklyn and Toronto. Work on the album began around the same time the US election campaigns launched, and the record was finally finished almost two years later, on election day.
The record is the band's first release after a long search for a permanent lineup. Angus and co-founder Jeffrey Lewis finally settled on Kirty, Kevin Black, Nick McKinlay, and Lisa Lorenz. “It was two years building up a-new band, a new sound, a new show, getting to know each other,” Angus says. “We’ve really become the tightest of friends.”
