Biography

Infectious, cool and catchy, Drive Faster keeps dance-rock slick and savvy. Vroom vroom

A rhythmic band with an indie pop vibe, drummer Michael Holbrook, guitarist Tony Gare and bassist Jeff Scale lock into up-tempo, new wave grooves that will make you dance even if you dont know how. Frontwoman Angela Saini, trading in her electric guitar for a micro-Korg synthesizer last year, adds in melodic hooks with small twists and turns that result in memorable songs with catchy choruses that keep rolling on long after the band has packed up and left. Their music is just like their personality: friendly and upbeat. They are realistic and ambitious. Top that with talented (Andranne Sasseville Sirius Satellite Radio, BOBBi MAGAZINE).

Boasting a long history of touring across the continent from their original headquarters in Calgary, AB, Drive Faster are not a band to sit curb-side. Formerly known as Supernal, reviewers testified, the energy and vibe they provide to their audience is infectious (Uncharted Sounds, 2008). Shows opening for Angels and Airwaves and Sum 41, along with airplay on over 300 commercial and college radio stations, led the band to pack up and move to Toronto.

With a new name and electro-rock style, Drive Faster debuted their new sound at Canadian Music Week in 2009. Featured in an episode of Master Tracks on AUX TV, producers Moe Berg (Pursuit of Happiness, The Cliks) and Lawrence Currie (Sloan, Wintersleep) worked with the band to record the song Analog at Metalworks studio. Berg described the process as a homerun and during the episode says, The vocalist is just so outstanding. You almost get a rush when you are recording someone like that.

The debut, Frame of Mind was released to a packed crowd at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto in July and is available on iTunes and other retailers as Drive Faster heads to the fast lane. The depth and texture of the songs mixed with the emotive driving force of the band gives every indication the band is not slowing down. As Phillip Hong on FAB! Indie declared, they provide a sound that's energetic and inspiring. The lyrics actually make sense. And you don't need earplugs to enjoy its rebellious feel. What you do need are shoes to dance in.

SUITCASE

Written By: Angela Saini


Damn it’s so hot in here, I might as well wear a gag
You thought you could lock me up, throw away the key, I guess you don’t know me
Incapable to pretend that this doesn’t have to end, because it’s pretty clear to see
And that’s the difference between you and me

Take me out of this suitcase
I’m giving up on keeping up this chase
Some things are not very hard to replace
This suitcase, this suitcase
Take me out of this suitcase
I’m coming back for the things you erased
And I am not gonna get myself displaced
Like this suitcase, this suitcase

It’s like I’m on a turnaround, waiting to be received
Because you held the key, and that’s not me
You don’t actually believe it would be that easy, how did I not even really see
I must have been so damn crazy

You don’t know where I want to go

Before I Dry

Written By: Angela Saini

Like a raindrop makes its presence known
It was waiting and ready to go
I will either fall or float
Unrecognized on your window

I wanna land on you before I dry
I wanna land on you before I dry

Should I fall and give it a try
I’d like to make a splash before I die
I’ve been waiting a long long time
Am I better off in the sky
If I am to land on the ground
It might take a long time for me to be found
I don’t want to be pavement bound
Cause now it’s too late to turn around

I wanna land on you before I dry
I wanna land on you before I dry
I wanna land on you before I dry
That’s how I feel waiting to strike

I’d go anywhere, follow you down into the ground
From here to there, but I’m running out of time
I’d go anywhere, I’ve been watching every step that you take, every move that you make and I’m hoping it’s not a mistake

Was I better off in the sky
Cause I’m just a drop and I don’t know why
I’d like to be recognized
As more then just a little wet surprise

I wanna land on you before I dry
I wanna land on you before I dry
I wanna land on you before I dry
That’s how I feel waiting to strike

All in Good Time

Written By: Angela Saini, Tony Gare

ALL IN GOOD TIME (Flowers Always Die)

Leaving last night, shaken up and white
you seemed so pale, you seemed so frail
Today I see the light, when things are gone we must move along
and enjoy memory, enjoy beauty

A dozen roses say goodbye, all in good time
Because flowers always die, all in good time
You caught up with all my lies, all in good time
Flowers always die

I took the only thing you had,
oh don’t you cry I’m not that sad
You see the end, it’s not fair my friend
How did you realize, could you see it in my eyes
Try something new, there’s not much to lose

A dozen roses say goodbye, all in good time
Because flowers always die, all in good time
You caught up with all my lies, all in good time
Flowers always die

Beauty’s not meant to last, now your in my past
All in good time, good time

Ripping Out the Pages

Written By: Angela Saini

I can’t find truth in all this mess, it’s always more or less
what someone’s willing to confess
The big bad wolf defines what we read between the lines

Ripping out the pages
I’m ripping out the pages
Ripping out the pages

Ripping out the pages
I’m ripping out the pages
Ripping out the pages

Don’t care about Napoleon, interpret what was done
History’s written by those who won
The big bad wolf defines what we mean between the lines

Now I’m Ripping out the pages
I’m ripping out the pages
Ripping out the pages

Ripping out the pages
I’m ripping out the pages
Ripping out the pages
