The five-piece – vocalist Kevin Hogg, Jay Jensen on bass and synths, drummer Scott Beattie, and guitarists Troy Taylor and Andrew Titley – is set to make an impactful statement with the release of their debut full-length in 2016. The album showcases the newest iteration of The Revival’s unique sonic hybridity, blending generous bits of electro and new wave with a foundation anchored in powerful alt rock. Their fusion of electronic and organic sounds is more seamless, and the songwriting more sophisticated. It’s the same band that packed sweaty partygoers into sold-out Winnipeg clubs years prior, only sharper, sleeker, and ultimately, superior.
