The Most Serene Republic make BIG pop. - Oh My Rockness

Band We Like

The Most Serene Republic make BIG pop.

February 26, 2008
Milton, Ontario's The Most Serene Republic is yet another fine Canadian collective that plays grand and sprawling chamber-indie-pop. They share a label (Arts & Crafts) with that other band we're primarily referring to (Broken Social Scene, but you knew that).

These six dudes and singer Emma Ditchburn certainly know how to go big. The Most Serene Republic's pop songs are full of plenty of horns, harmonies, pianos and strings, with melodies that stretch for the heavens. This sounds a lot like Stars set to 11 (and less syrupy). What can you really say... this is just pretty pop music played by a whole lot of people.

The Most Serene Republic play Schubas, on Thursday, March 6th.
