The best kept secret in music


In case you couldn't tell by all the white space on the record's cover, Existence Is Song play melodic music that occupies that vast terrain between indie rock and emo. This isn't "post-hardcore," this is simple pop music that only gets the "E" tag by virtue of its undeniable youthfulness; perhaps it's just me, but there's something about Existence Is Song that screams "singing along with these songs while driving home from high school" to me.

The songs are well-crafted enough, but it's all just completely in one ear and out the other for me. There's nothing about Existence Is Song that is unexpected, original or even exciting. Every chord change comes right when I expect it to and every chorus is as catchy as I expect it to be, but not catchy enough that I'm humming it after the song is over. I hope they titled the record A Work in Progress for a reason, because this band is going to have push themselves a lot harder if they want to really catch people's ears. - Deep Fry Bonanza - http://www.deepfrybonanza.com/reviews.php?id=3845

A Work in Progress - 2004 (EP)

-released on Barcode Records in August of 2004


Feeling a bit camera shy


After years of playing in a number of different bands, brothers Clayton, Curtis and Cory decided that their mutual love for music could best be expressed by creating music together. It was this realization that led them to form Just Cause, a Sudbury-based punk rock group including Dan Lallande on drums in early 1996.

The band’s first and only album, “Open Road”, showed great potential and featured a number of instantly recognizable (and danceable) songs, including fan favourites “Twenty Dollar Toast”, “Untitled” and “Inspiration”. Just Cause would go on to play many gigs and sell a fair amount of records before parting ways due to members moving away for different reasons.

A year and a half went by before the three brothers decided to start playing music together again, this time choosing the name Existence is Song - representative of the role music plays in all of their lives. With a handful of new songs and continued interest from their label, Barcode Records, EIS recruited Jesse to play drums, and immediately started work on the new material.

Existence is Song is a new beginning. It is music without boundaries, music that will remind you why you loved it in the first place. EIS are not trying to fit into any pre-determined genres or sell to any particular crowd; they’re in it for the sole purpose of creating and performing the most sincere music possible. And as musicians mature, so too does their song writing. The collection of songs released on their latest EP for Barcode Records is proof of great things to come.
