The best kept secret in music


When I first stumbled across this band on myspace, I
was quickly interested in what they had to offer the
world of music. There was a song posted called "Into
This Life" that sent shivers up my spine during the
first listen. Combining ear-shattering harmonics,
ambient sound scapes, and introspective lyrics, this
Toronto trio seems destined to turn heads in the
independent music community. Their new promotional
disc featuring three songs ("Turn". "For That Day",
"Into this Life" plus a very unique seague) is filled
to the brim of extremely sonic arrangements
reminiscent of alternative acts such as Do Make Say
Think, Swervedriver, Trail of Dead, A Northern Chorus,
Godspeed You Black Emperor, and Explosions in the Sky.
It would be hard to describe the sound of this band,
as I feel that one should experience them live. The
category "shoe gaze" may come to mind but I'd rather
go with "soul gaze." The smooth vocals and unique
guitar playing of Todd Moffat backed by the full bass
lines of John McLister and the steady yet heavy
drumming of Vincent Gratton are best explored at a
small club where the sonic force of the band can
really shake your teeth from your skull. for That Day
also plays a variety of songs not included on the e.p.
and do some really interesting sample work during
their live sets as well.
I could continue to rant and rave about their musical
abilities or introspective lyrics but I'll just leave
it up to you, the human music listener, to go out and
embrace the extremely warm sounds of For That Day. -

Feeling a bit camera shy


ForThatDay (FTD) spawned in Ottawa where Todd Moffat (guitar, vocals)
and John Mclister (bass) met in industrial design school and noticed their artistic
and musical influences were very similar. Both had a strong desire to strike the
Toronto indie music scene, with a heavy shoegaze assult. FTD then added
Igor Saika-Voivod (lead guitar), a classically trained cello and piano player to round
the edges. Songs were finding a new sound and they quickly went into a recording studio
in London, Ontario to record their debut EP. Igor was a perfect match for Todd’s songwriting
with a sound similar to early 80’s British rock rivaling the modern American indie sound.
Soon after Vince Gratton (drums), another friend out of the school of design, joined the
band and FOR THAT DAY were ready to wreak havoc in Toronto’s live music scene.

FTD have blasted through their first year leaving a trail of destruction behind
them with 12 live shows, a professional recorded debut EP, a live video, and a short
film in the near future. The band has already played Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton,
and London and their debut EP entitled “we’ll all just have to wait…FORTHATDAY”
is planned to be independently released by early 2007.
