Mild Barbarians write rock soul pop. They call it that because it seems to accurately describe their vibe. Eventually they'll just be known as Mild Barbarians: their own genre. Until then....
Fronted by Nick Martin, the band leans into popular sounds via The Shins, Cold War Kids and Foo Fighters. The sound of their self titled debut certainly celebrates their many influences but, rises above to sound new and inticing; it's familiar but fresh.
When Nick first started putting the band together, he hit up shows and friends to find the best in Edmonton. With the tight knit nature of Edmonton's music scene making it easy to find the best players (because they play in most of the bands) Nick took he best from each band to create the best band in town.
And Mild Barbarians ae the best band Edmonton.
You just don't know it yet.
