Our music critics recount their best night on the job in 2006

(Feb. 10, Drake Underground) The next 12 months could prove to be the year of Spiral Beach, but these teenage phenoms already had a helluva '06. This all-ages
gig at the Drake was one of many convert-making concerts, as the Spirals simply aced an endorphin-flooding set that displayed equal measures of beyond-their-years songwriting chops and in-joke rec room goofiness. Too much hype can be a dangerous thing for an up-and-coming group, making detractors out of people who haven't yet heard a note, but anything less than shouting praise for these wunderkinds from downtown rooftops wouldn't do them justice.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Brothers Airick and Daniel Woodhead started writing songs together at the ages of 12 and 13, incorporating elements of whatever new musical discoveries they made. Soon adding childhood friend Maddy Wilde as a second vocalist, as well as bass player Dorian Wolf, a transplant to Toronto from New York City, Spiral Beach's was made offical February 21, 2003.
After several basement demos and a longer self titled release in 2005, Spiral Beach quickly found a place in Toronto's thriving indie scene. Playing locally with fellow up and coming acts such as Tokyo Police Club, the band quickly found itself on the road, touring America with fellow Canadian acts such as Sloan and the Hidden Cameras. They have also received attention from both critics and industry, being featured on the cover of NOW magazine in 2006, and playing the North by Northeast conference three times with great success.
The band has become notorious for their onstage charisma and fearless attitude towards performing, showcasing a level of professionalism unexpected from such young players. The band blends musical styles effortlessly, defying expectations of a "pop" or "teen" act with music comparable to Zappa's Mothers of Invention, featuring boy/girl vocal duets, bizarre instrumental segways and a kaleidoscopic stage show. . . .
In the winter of 2007, the band relocated to a barn outside of Hamilton to record their next release. Working with both Mike Olsen (the Hidden Cameras, Arcade Fire) in Toronto and Scotty Hard (Medeski Martin & Wood, Wu-Tang Clan) in New York, the final result, titled "Ball", will be released in the fall.
