Toronto’s Laser, the new group fronted by vocalist Lisa Lobsinger(Broken Social Scene), Paul Pfisterer (The Beauties) and Martin Davis Kinack (Transistor Sound & Lighting Co.), has announced the release of their debut full-length album, Night Driver, available on January 29, 2016 on Foreseen Entertainment.
Laser plays their first-ever live concerts December 8 supporting Rhye at Danforth Music Hall and December 19 at Phoenix Concert Theatre as support to Stars Set Yourself on Fire anniversary tour. Both shows are in Toronto with more tour dates to be announced.
The galactic dream-pop trio emerged this August with their debut single, “Leaving It Too Late” via SPIN, and its video via Exclaim, followed by a second single, “Do We All Feel It”, which premiered via NYLON in September, calling it “a kaleidoscopic tapestry of dancefloor-ready drum machines and steady keyboards.” Night Driver has already received a glowing 4/5 review from BUST Magazine, who stated the dreamy debut album “creates a moody atmosphere that sounds cool, yet exudes warmth.”
Laser’s sound takes cues from electronic and atmospheric albums and late night country drives from Lisa and Paul’s Toronto home to Marty’s remote “studio in the forest.” Their music is an example of both the synthetic and the analog, both city and forest, of an atmosphere creating a score for an introspective and meditative drive out of town.
Night Driver was written, recorded and produced by Laser at Casa Bonita Studio (Mono, ON) and The Cock Pit (Toronto, ON). Mastered by Martin Davis Kinack at Casa Bonita. And includes special appearances by Coenraad Bloemendaal, Blake Manning and Jud Ruhl. The live performances feature Julie Fader (Etiquette) and Dean Stone (Apostle of Hustle).
