Atomicos and Too Soon Monsoon get psyched for summer with surf and pop

It appears Spring has finally sprung, so naturally the mind might drift to beaches and surfing. And because it was 4/20 day, perhaps  illicit substances.

I always seem to miss them, so was pleased to finally catch a peppy set up upbeat, groove filled instrumental music.

 They were equal parts Ventures and Shadowy Men From a Shadowy Planet, so ran the gamut from traditional surf to more punk. I thought I heard a few bars of the Supersuckers’ Sleepy Vampire.”

There was plenty of ’60s style twang and  plenty of bass groove.

Saskatoon indie pop duo Too Soon Monsoon opened the show with an enjoyable set of upbeat, keyboard heavy indie-pop featuring vocalist/keyboardist Greg and drummer Nathan focused on music from their EP.
