Sunday Music Spotlight – Green Go

Canadian dance-rockers Green Go
As far as I know two really good things have come out of Guelph, Ontario, Canada: Neve Campbell and the band Green Go. Neve Campbell is an obvious choice to anyone who grew up watching Party of Five (which I freely admit to). Green Go is less obvious, but just as deserving. The similarities don’t end at Guelph though. There are five members of Green Go; Neve starred in Party of Five. Perhaps most importantly though, Neve trained as a dancer, and Green Go is all about making people dance.

At the heart of the five members of Green Go is one dynamic duo: Fez Stenton and Jessica Tollefsen. Both are classically trained pianists who escaped the stuffy conservatory and are reveling in the joy of electronic pop. Joining them are bassist Kyle Squance and a pair of drummers: Mark Andrade and Adam Scott. The quintet is releasing their debut album Borders in a couple of weeks, but you can hear a sample of the groove-inspiring tunes right here.

Just your average zombie dance tune. You know, the kind you hear all over the radio these days. No? Well you should.

This is the type of electronic music I actually like. It has a purpose. It moves. It inspires you to move. It’s not repetitive and boring like most electronica.
