Based in Victoria, British Columbia, Aidan Knight and his band play — in their words, quoting the words of others — “baroque” and “downtrodden” music. Don’t let this mislead you — though much of it is slow, or mellow, or quiet, there’s a subdued sort of optimism going on just below the surface throughout many of these experimental folks songs. Sure, there’s the sort of melancholy that comes from recording in a cabin in the woods, Bon Iver-style, but there’s more to Aidan Knight than that. Here, he and the band play some songs and Aidan talks a bit about the songwriting and recording process.
Featured song: “Dream Team”
