I discovered Toronto rock band, Here Below, right after my very first APE experience in the winter of 2011. It also happened to be the first show that the newly added guitarist, Scott Carruthers shared the stage with the crew, which I couldn't tell at all from their tight performance.
As I started digging their dark Radiohead-infused melodies, filled with peculiar rhythms, which I was lured in to, I just started streaming their music. It was right up my ally. However, it was such a heart-breaking moment to find out that Here Below went on hiatus.
I've waited so long for this moment.They are currently recording new materials to be released in Spring 2012. A couple of songs have been put up on Soundcloud if you would like to check them out. Oh hold on, I meant that you MUST check them out.
The singer/guitarist, Scott Carruthers and the drummer, Steve Song have performed an acoustic version of "So, Still" via Deck Jams, captured by Andrew Pierce from Wandering Media. Two Thumbs up! I promise you if I hear anything about them, I will keep you guys posted! Stay tuned!
