League of Nations (ep, 2006)



Formed in the summer of 2004, Toronto-based League of Nations is comprised of Sarah Watson(bass/vocals), Derek Aubichon (guitar/keyboards/vocals), and Rajo Zakic(drums/vocals). LoN is a full-on pop-band in the tradition of Fleetwood Mac, the Magnetic Fields and Blondie; classic lyrical conceits are built around punchy rhythms, hooky melody lines and vocal harmonies in an exploration of the genre that runs the gamut from Cars-ish new-wave to introspective country-folkisms. Lead vocals and songwriting duties are primarily handled by guitarist Aubichon with occasional contributions by (and recently collaborations with) Watson – the former’s AM radio-centric sensibility being offset by the latter’s love of 70s punk and 90s lo-fi college rock. In addition to their original compositions the band enjoys re-imagining the works of the masters as their own; covers of Prince’s When You Were Mine and Springsteen’s I’m on Fire (among others) have become staples of live performances. League of Nations self-released a four-song self-titled ep in the summer of 2006. We are currently working on a proper full-length debut.
