Jackkn1fe gave me the heads-up on this Vancouver band, along with a slew of others. There's a melancholy streak through their music and lyrics that evoke the incessant greyness of the Pacific Northwest from October through May with fine layers of pop pulling it all together. One of the LastFM features I like to check out is super similar bands, which include The Zolas {NewMusicMonday #9}, We Are the City, a Kelowna band that also got a nod from Jackkn1fe, and Aidan Knight "100 Blows" with its video homage to Truffaut's Quatre Cents Coups, offers a good intro to what the band's about::

Here's a live version of "Daytime Friend"::

Well, I'm under the weather this Victoria Day, which is fitting since I hear Queen Victoria isn't doing so hot either. So, I think I'll go back to bed. I hope your VD a good one
