Trait D'union
Just a couple of fresh-out-of-high school 18 year old kids who love making music more than anything else. Formed after the demise of their former band, Reality Control, two high school friends, Thomas Aguinaga and Marc-Antoine Moisan, chose to embark on a life many of their idols have followed before them. With Aguinaga on drums and Moisan on vocals and guitar, they bring us powerful lyrics about loneliness, lost friendships and the hope of one day finding true happiness. These punks are wise beyond their years. Guitar hooks that you'll be humming when you don't mean to, drum beats that will have you banging your head. If you're looking for the new big thing in this "Folk Rock" movement we're seeing so much of, then look no further. Influenced by many of the worlds greatest Folk artists and Folk bands, including Mumford & Sons, Fleet Foxes and Cat Stevens, these guys will revolutionize the genre. Just wait and see.
