Toronto Indie rockers Goodbye Honolulu have already toured the with the likes of Hinds, Kate Nash and SWMRS and gained high praise from an unlikely source, pop royalty Selena Gomez, thanks to their garage rock sound and super tight live shows.
Fried records 4 piece, Goodbye Honolulu have been building a strong fanbase over in North America for some time now and have already recruited a superstar fan with Selena Gomez citing them as her favourite band in an interview with SiriusXM. But even without the celebrity endorsement there’s plenty of reasons for Goodbye Honolulu to be your new favourite band, their thick dirty bass grooves and enormous riffs make them essential Rock ‘n’ Roll listening. Know for their hectic, energetic live shows filled with instrument swapping and crows members drenched in sweat this band are at the very heart of a new wave of Canadian rock bands ready to take over the world.
Check out their track ‘Typical’ below, a wavy, surf garage juggernaut that grows and layers, an angsty road trip playlist essential straight from the Rock & Roll textbook.
2020 will see them hit the U.K having already announced Focus Wales along side the likes of Flamingods and Gruff Rhys and I’m sure we can expect more from them, plus potentially a new album.
