Broken Social Scene
Broken Social Scene Biography
Broken Social Scene is a Canadian indie rock supergroup, a musical collective currently including nineteen members, formed in 1999 (see 1999 in music) in Toronto, Ontario. Almost all of its members currently play in other various groups and solo projects, mainly based around the city of Toronto. The group's sound could be considered a combination of all of it's members' respective musical projects, and is usually identified as baroque pop. It is characterized by a very large amount of sounds, grand orchestrations featuring guitars, horns, woodwinds, and violins, unusual song structures, and an experimental, and sometimes chaotic production style from David Newfeld. The band's core members are Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning. This duo recorded and released the band's ambient debut album, Feel Good Lost, on Noise Factory Records in 2001, with contributions by Justin Peroff, Charles Spearin and Bill Priddle. However, when they played shows to support the album, Drew and Canning found it difficult to put together an entertaining show based on Feel Good Lost, which was an almost entirely instrumental album.
