What Now That You Are A Dancer delivers is infectious indie pop, with bouncy melodies, wit ("Breaking Up is the New Getting Married", "Who Would Want to Be Loved"), and introspection. It usually comes in an under three minute burst with a fast tempo, but the band slows down the proceedings on a few occasions, such as the memorable "Skeletons" on which Kate takes the lead vocals. While the band is careful about not releasing songs before they are ready, there is nothing restrained about the music they do release; one word that comes to mind is triumphant. They have the entire package of songwriting, vocals and musicianship, and we are the beneficiaries.
Here is a taste of their live performance --
Many of us who pay attention to indie pop feel that this band has arrived. And listening to the album, even the band might actually agree. Carefully, of course.
Kid Canaveral is David MacGregor (guitar/vocals), Kate Lazda (guitar/vocals), Rose McConnachie (bass/vocals), and Scott McMaster (percussion).
