Rolemodel - Claire

kleinfreund Easy-on-the-ears alternative pop on this short album (or long EP). The vocals could use a little less effects on them, they’re so aspirated on tracks like “Trans Canada Misery” and “Cruel Intensions”. Still, the record is very much enjoyable. Favorite track: Teen Idol.

“The Toronto band blends confessional themes and dreamy shoegaze” – POP MATTERS

“ROLEMODEL meet new wave and shoegaze in the middle, weaving sparkling synths around intricate guitar work and lyrical introspection” – COMPLEX

“The music of Rolemodel is often described as “dreamy,” “hazy,” “ethereal” – the list of adjectives with nods to the subconscious go on – and continues on “Until,” an intoxicating new track” – FLAVORWIRE

“the sticky, hazy, dreamy thing that gets stuck in your mind on a humid July afternoon” – OUT MAGZINE

“a downtempo emotional journey with a killer chorus synth hook” – SILENT SHOUT

“Sculptant ses mélodies pop atmosphériques au moyen d’une lead guitar fluette ou perçant dans un halo de synthétiseurs à grandes envolées lyriques, l’originaire de Toronto n’hésite pas à libérer l’électricité quand il s’agit d’enquiller ses refrains ou ralentir gravement le tempo” – HARTZINE

“ROLEMODEL bring ’80s new wave music into the 21st century by mixing electronic and shoegaze elements with flair” – EXCLAIM!




Written and produced by Rolemodel. Vocals and Lyrics on “Until” by Jessica Crowe (Praises). Drums for track 1, 2 and 6 performed by Michael Laing. Recorded by Alex Bonenfant at Noble Street studios, Toronto Canada. Mastered by Jason Fee.
