Comment: The Montrèal-based collective Tracer Flares` used to have much more cultural references and layers than it may prove at first glance. They go along the path of soft rock being popularized by Keane in the middle of 00s; on the other side, it often reveal slightly darker sides thereby harking back to the tradition of post-punk and gothic rock music of the 70s and 80s in Great Britain. Furthermore, they are deliberately bombastic at full heart, showing up an inclination of pop culture to exaggerate its premises and foundations. Additionally, it is a matter of fact the collective is adept in creating great pop songs. So get it and enjoy it.
