Hi music lovers!
I’ll be honest, I’m not usually very interested in award ceremonies. I don’t think I’ve ever watched a full award ceremony for more than a few minutes now that I think of it…
This year I’m really excited for the Juno Awards because three really amazing bands from Toronto are nominated:
Nominated for “Breakthrough Group of the Year”
- The Dirty Nil
Nominated for “Alternative Album of the Year”
- Dilly Dally
These bands are so deserving of these nominations and I’m hoping the ceremony works out in their favour!
The Dirty Nil
The Dirty Nil is a band I’ve only started listening to recently. They are such an amazing punk/rock band and I love all of their songs.
Mentionable songs by them that you should check out are:
- Fuckin’ Up Young
- Zombie Eyed
- Wrestle Yü To Hüsker Dü
Weaves is a really cool, quirky band from Toronto. I honestly don’t know too much of their music but their sound is awesome and really unique! The first song I ever heard from them was actually a cover of the One Direction song “Drag Me Down”, which sounded nothing like the original (in a very good way).
Songs to check out my Weaves:
- One More
- Coo Coo
- Drag Me Down
If you’ve been following my blog since the beginning, you may have read my post, “Feature Band: Dilly Dally”
I am obsessed with Dilly Dally. I had the opportunity to see them live in 2016 at a small venue in Toronto, and they were incredible. When I first started listening to them, they didn’t have much of a following, but they’ve come so far since then! I’m so so excited to see them getting recognized.
My favourites by Dilly Dally:
- Snake Head
- Candy Mountain
- Witch Man
If you haven’t already listened to these bands, go give them a listen! They’re so incredible and I’m so stoked that Toronto has such a great music scene right now.
