Toronto’s Bishop Morocco release their new EP ‘Old Boys’ on March 13 via Arts & Crafts. ‘Old Boys’ is a six-track EP on which the band moves away from its original new wave influences. The band’s Toronto EP release party is March 8 at Wrongbar.
Bishop Morocco is the musical vision of James Sayce and Jake Fairley. The Toronto-based duo recorded its 2008 self-titled debut at a homemade studio in their Groningen, Netherlands apartment. The band has since added Ian Worang on guitar and Jon McCann on drums.
The band’s sound was described by Under The Radar Magazine as “shimmery and sensual new wave that stands on the shoulders of New Order and Joy Division,” and by the National Post as “sweetly moody atmospheric pop,” These influences are quite evident in Bishop Morocco’s sound and in a very good way.
