"Confusion In Stereo -3 song ep"

An itty-bitty teaser of this Montreal-based band’s music, this three-song EP brims with great promise in its first two tracks, and then obliterates any charm with its third one. There is a distinct air of emo about the first two tracks, but, by the sheer fact there is no money for hi-fi slickness, the lo-fi qualities bring some grand messy elements that harkens to a louder and un-ironic Pavement. The first track “E Nova,” rings with echoed, harmonising guitars and lead singer Danny Lajoie’s earnest tenor, and leaves the listener interested in where else the band can go. Second track, “Flagshop Mercenary,” uses scattershot drums, some crunchy feedback and hides a reggae soul. It is in the third track, “Sequel” that the band lives up to its name. Apparently giving up on any direction established in the previous songs, this song is pure metal/grind/hardcore. Hard driving beats, throat searing screams and little purpose, this throws everything for a loop. Confusion in Stereo could certainly be a great band, in fact, they’re probably a pretty good one right now, but they live up to their name a little too closely for comfort.

Bio

Listen! This is different. Confusion In Stereo is music's answer to all those who say, "It's all been done before." From Montreal, Canada, where they honed and developped their music, these 4 young men have created an ear shrieking buzz in and around their city and are now preparing to showcase their music to the world.
Their music is an intense blend of Rock, Metal, Melodic rock, Reggae, Ska and more, with influences from both Classical and Jazz. Their live show will keep you asking, "What the hell are they going to do next?" "We're trying to perfect the art of creating waves." Says Danny Lajoie, in reference to the unpredictable nature of their live show, where they can go from extremely heavy metal to extremely melodic ballads.
CIS came to be when Jeremy Weigens (drummer) joined forces with singer/songwriter Daniel Lajoie. Other musicians have changed a couple of times over the years untill they found guitarist Matthew Ilantzis and most recently, bassist Max Pollack.
In 2001, CIS surprised everybody including themselves when they won the Inter-collegiate BOTB in Montreal and then beat out 182 bands from in and around Quebec to make it to the final round in the CHOM 97.7 FM ESPRIT competition. Since then they have played such venues as : Club Soda, Spectrum, Foufounes Electriques, The Kathedral, Cafe Campus and more.
It has not been an easy road for CIS as it is not an easy path they've chosen, but with a little help along the way and a firm grip on their integrity, Confusion In Stereo is out to make your heads explode. . . In a good way.
