“On and On,” the first single off of Loose Fang’s Live Wires, is dynamic, loud, and bittersweet; tackling the passage of time and how that sometimes leaves us forgetting what happens if we sleep too long. The accompanying music video was edited from full colour, found home videos of a family holidaying in San Diego in the 1940s.
The personal and musical backgrounds of Vancouver’s Loose Fang are as diverse as the land they call home – a modern Canadian band. They recorded their debut album, Live Wires, Black Sheep, with producer Howard Redekopp (New Pornographers, You Say Party, Tegan and Sara, Mother Mother) for his new How Weird Sounds imprint in a tight, loud, and raw burst. Putting down 11 songs live, Loose Fang captured the sound of four people playing in a room together, with a minimum of overdubs.
