Canadian indie rock collective Yes Nice are set to release their sophomore LP, Warm Gun, in August, featuring the addictive pop track “Hot River.” I’m not Canadian but almost every music submission I’ve gotten where the artist is from Canada or somewhere else outside the US, I’ve just loved the music!
Stream and download “Hot River” by Yes Nice.
Read more about the band below and some upcoming August tour dates in Canada.
Created by childhood friends Scott McKellar and Nathaniel Wong, Yes Nice introduced their upbeat harmonies and charming vocals in 2007 with the release of their debut self-titled EP. Since then, they have acquired members Jillian McKellar, Darren Frank, and percussionist Peter Hendrickson.
After gaining attention of Vancouver’s Peak Performance Project, a professional development program to help create sustaining careers in the music industry, they began to woo audiences at high profile events such as The Works Art & Design Fest, New Music West and The TransCanada Alberta Music Series, gaining a sizeable fanbase in their native Canada, as well as spreading to other international markets.
The band will be touring Canada in the late summer to support the release of Warm Gun.
