The National Music Centre is pleased to present some of Edmonton's finest as part of the Alberta Spotlight series, lo-fi pop romantic Calvin Love with indie-pop darling Marlaena Moore.
With coolness that defies contrivance, Calvin Love is the lo-fi pop romantic who weaves an array of genres through a retro-future lens. But it's with his latest album, Highway Dancer (2018), that a new kind of road-noir comes to the forefront—his usual shades of deep scarlet and aubergine now laced with the clay-red of the Badlands and the ice-blue glow of the dashboard.
Marlaena Moore is an enigmatic performer with an incredible presence and soaring voice. Her songs cross personal bedroom confessionals with grunge influenced guitar tones in a tight pop-song package.
