Singer Kyle Morris told us that the last time he was in Canada, he was mistaken for a member of Death From Above 1979 (I'm going to go right out on a limb and guess it was Jesse Keeler) and had a rather eventful night. Stories like this, along with his relentless enthusiasm, got the crowd well warmed-up for the headliners. Morris' stage presence is undeniable and the band's musicianship, groove, energy and their big-chorused songs are the perfect compliment. The Unlikely Candidates play good long-haired hard rock with groove and melody.
At one point Morris asked who had seen the band before. It was a very small number, if anyone. He said, great, we just got a whole bunch of brand new fans. Fantastic attitude and probably bang on right.
Give The Unlikely Candidates a listen:
"Your Love Could Start a War"
"Follow My Feet"
