There’s something brewing in Canada lately: indie band The Unicorns have confirmed that they are discussing a reunion, Arts & Crafts Records’ Field Trip festival has tapped The Constantines to reunite this June and Broken Social Scene will come out of their hiatus once again to headline said festival for a second year in a row. Reunions are starting to become a hot trend this year and we are absolutely down for this.
This got us thinking: what other Canadian acts are we dying to see make a comeback? A boy oh boy, there is a long list. Take a look below at our top picks of bands we are dying to see reunite ASAP.
And tell us: who do you want to see get back together? Did we miss anyone on this list?
Land of Talk
This indie-rock band first formed in 2006 when they released their debut EP Applause Cheer Boo Hiss. Since then, they’ve put out two stellar albums and lead singer Liz Powell even served some time as a member of the aforementioned Broken Social Scene. Although the band hasn’t actually broken up per se, they have stayed super quiet since their 2010 album Cloak and Cipher and we are dying to see one of our fave acts get back together and crank out some new tunes.
All time fave boy band, next to Backstreet Boys and N*SYNC. THAT’S how good they were!
Around the time Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene exploded about a decade ago, Wolf Parade also rode the wave of success that was the result of all the attention Canada (Toronto and Montreal specifically) was getting. And for good reason – Wolf Parade were great! The band has also spawned a few other Canadian greats that no longer exist, Sunset Rubdown and Handsome Furs. Our tiiiiny request: REUNITE ALL THREE ASAP.
We literally caught Sky’s Love Song on the radio the other day and was immediately hit with a wave of nostalgia. The name may not sound too familiar at first — after all, Sky is quite the vague name — but once you hit play below you’ll be transported to a simpler time when this song was everywhere in Canada (especially our hearts). Sky, please serenade us with your love song again.
Okay, so this break-up is still kind of fresh, but we’ve been missing Alexisonfire every day since the band said their goodbye in 2011 (and completed their final tour in 2012). Thankfully, we’ve been enjoying singer Dallas Green’s solo project City & Colour lately but let’s face it, we miss being in that mosh pit and screaming those words to 44 Caliber Love Letter and Accidents. We’d happily welcome AOF back anytime in the future.
This Toronto indie band was only around for four years, but their two albums are among our fave Canadian releases. Combining punk and disco rhythms together, Controller.Controller was one of a kind and listening to their music is always a joyous blast from the past. If only we could groove to their music again…
The animation in Prozzak videos are so indicative of the late ’90s/early 2000s that we can’t help but fall into a hole of YouTube surfing once we start watching these amazing videos. Known as a cartoon duo, kinda like Gorillaz meets the Hamsterdance song (REMEMBER THAT?), Prozzak was a Much fave back in the day and we’d do anything to get Simon and Milo back to soundtrack all of our heartbreaks. www.nevergetoveryouprozzak!
