Discovery: ID Guinness

Two Katherines is the latest release from Canadian indie pop group ID Guinness, showing a remarkably different style of music from the norm.

By Jane Howkins

As well as the classic indie-pop features, elements of folk run amok, with the instrumentation used here to create a wonderful atmosphere of mystery and intrigue. The vocals don’t enter properly until late, but when they do they only serve to add more to this feeling, with parts that even sound like they’re aiming to imitate choral music.

It’s different from the norm, but that is in no way a bad thing. Check out ID Guinness below and see what you think:
