The Quebec musicians recently released an EP, Hush Hush, which they will be promoting at the Split Crow on Jan. 24.
Growing up in Wakefield, Que., David and Rylee Taggart, along with their cousin Alex Serre, watched their parents play music at family get togethers until it was time for them to pick up the instruments.
Joining them is their childhood friend Nick Johnston.
Since forming two years ago, the band has produced one other EP – ‘Three Sheets to the Wind.’
