Silent Shout: Plazas / New Chance / Katie McBride / Isla Den @ Handlebar
Silent Shout is thrilled to present the album release show for DISTANT DESIRES, the first full length album by one of Canada’s best and brightest electronic pop artists, PLAZAS. Joining her is an incredible lineup of intrepid electronic navigators: Toronto megatalents New Chance, Katie McBride, and Isla Den.

// Plazas

“So close yet so far away, intangible like a dream, a parallel universe. That’s how I felt when I first moved from Vancouver to Toronto. A feeling that is difficult to describe in the spoken word, but flowed itself into the songs on this album.

It may feel like it’s been a (really) long wait, but the night has finally arrived and I cannot wait to share Distant Desires, my self-produced debut. An inter-dimensional synthpop album that reflects upon the past within my own futuristic dream world. This one is for you my friends, near and far.”
