Biography

MySpace page (all photos and pretty much all the info we have so far is here at the moment)

Trips and Falls don’t talk much. When they introduced themselves to me, all I got was an email headed ‘Band Recommendation’, a single sentence of introduction and a MySpace link – not that you really need anything more.

And all that’s in their bio now? is: “From the deserts of Arizona and the prairies of Saskatchewan Jacob Romero and Paul Gareau met at university in the city of Montreal in 2007. After a brief stint with fellow Montreal band Valleys they formed Trips and Falls. Later Amanda Caron (vocals) and Ashleigh Delaye (bass and keyboard) joined.”

So what else can I tell you about them? Well if I were to try and describe them in a sentence I would do it thus: “gentle and spooky guitar pop, alternately sadly sweet and disturbingly arrhythmic.”

And Herohill had this to say about the self-release version of their soon-to-be-Toaded album He Was Such a Quiet Boy “I honestly don’t know what it is about these songs – Jacob’s voice? e eerie vibe that creeps into the mix? e harmonies? e interesting background clanks and textures? e quirky, fragmented change of pace they throw into How Do You Do? – but whatever that is, it grabs a hold of me like a vice grip.

I find myself letting the songs play over and over again, equally confused and impressed with their tormented soul and unconventional beauty. ”

The band are: Jacob Romero – vocals, guitars & various other stuff; Paul Gareau – drums, percussion.
