THE PROVINCIAL ARCHIVE - IT'S ALL SHAKEN WONDER

Edmonton Alberta's THE PROVINCIAL ARCHIVE has been honing their craft in dark northern Canadian winters over the last five years. In this time they have independently released two recordings, toured the country and travelled the world at the beckoning of their talent. While The Provincial Archive would not deny influence from indie-folk and pop icons, the band's development shows an evergreen dedication to their art. What started as an intimate voice-in-your-ear has evolved into the melodic and artistic indie-pop that they perform on tours and at festivals across Canada and around the world.

It's All Shaken Wonder (2014) is an indie-pop recording at heart. It's a focused album with unique character, and an identity that you'll find beneath the production. It sets a deeply personal lyrical catalog to the sound of consonant and colourful harmony: a bittersweet pairing of lyric and melody on a backdrop of rough-coloured recording, and methodical songwriting. From moment to moment you are taken from upbeat consonance to discord; sweet melodies, that float among jangling guitars, wash together with detuned synthesizers, and haunting vocal arrangements. Here you'll find all of The Provincial Archive's strengths at play: thick vocal harmony, entangled melody and indiscriminate instrumentation. Each has become synonymous with The Provincial Archive's reputation; It's All Shaken Wonder is a creative high water mark.
