What started as a 4-piece searing mix of heavy guitars, pulsing rhythms, and fierce vocals is now a solo project focusing on more depth and polished songwriting. Founding member Kayle Goguen continues to work on writing the music he feels is missing from todays musical landscape. Contour is an ode to the bands of his youth and a protest against the dwindling of rock music. Influenced by bands like Brand New, Billy Talent, Manchester Orchestra, Radiohead, Mogwai and Thrice - Contour aims to contribute to a genre that has given so much to its fans.
Contour's newest release “Above You” is slated for sept 13th, 2019 release. This will be the first single since the departure of former bandmates Alex Mcgee, Tyler Hooper and Phil Larochelle. Contour is headed in a new direction to write more meaningful, less riff-driven music while still building complex arrangements and using post-rock like ambience. Contour is now more focused than ever before on creating unique and engaging music that will make a lasting impression.
