There is something decidedly mystical about HAERTS’ story and it’s reflected in their sound, a kind of elegiac but warm electro-pop, which is showcased on their debut EP, “Hemiplegia.” Fittingly, you can almost narrate the band’s entire trajectory via the personal astrology charts of its members — an international constellation composed of Nini Fabi and Ben Gebert.
’Toronto’s breezy synth-pop outfit DIANA began as a collaboration between drummer Kieran Adams and saxophonist Joseph Shabason, fixtures of the city’s music scene who met while studying jazz at the University of Toronto (later, they played with acts including Warm Myth and Destroyer, respectively). Having written an album’s worth of demos during a working holiday in the Canadian countryside, the pair recruited singer Carmen Elle, formerly of Spiral Beach and Army Girls, to lend some sweeter vocals to the project.’ —Allmusic
