Townes sticks out a bit in the Ottawa music scene. Inundated with punk, hardcore, and metal, there aren’t a lot of pop or synthpop artists.
Each track manages to be shockingly unique, and all of them blur the lines between traditional music genres. Rhythm and riffs combine to create a sense of excitement and mystery that is not often seen in metal.
Local band Potential Red released their self-titled debut album earlier this month, which is a fast, raw, post-punk experience heavily influenced by the band’s love of the 1980s.
