Pop Montreal

POP Montreal has announced its annual POP Off tour series. Over the course of the past few years, the POP Off Tour has featured such stand-outs as Grimes, Plants & Animals, Malajube and Ought.

For this year’s tour, they’re sending post-doo-wop duo She-Devils and esoteric R&B maverick Un Blonde (two of Montreal’s most happening artists) out on the road for the annual POP Off Tour this July and journey across three province in a little over a week.

She-Devils want to show you there is a fine line between paying homage to music history and defacing it, as they paint crudely simplistic drawings atop of it. Singer Audrey Ann and noise/sampling-artist Kyle Jukka’s have no interest in exhibiting any kind of refined musicality, but rather intend on creating impressions that burrow into both the heart and the imagination. The duo has been writing songs together and performing since the summer of 2014 and has released the celebrated ‘She-Devils EP’ earlier this year.

Un Blonde
Jean-Sebastien Audet is known for many things. There is the spastic free-punk of Tenet, the communal transcendence of Habit Anything, and the lyrical & loose RnB of Water the Next Day. Jean’s upcoming album under the Un Blonde moniker ‘Good Will Come to You’ brings his free-wheeling world into a slower, more reflective mood.
