In The Spotlight

AUGUSTA – “Little Birds”

Hailing from Toronto, this Canadian 7-piece alternative rock band was formed in 2022. Led by Joe Dent (formerly of A Fellow Ship), August Jones (touring member of The Reklaws) and Zach Stuckey (touring member of Dani Doucette), they’ve been described as “sparking ferocious dance parties wherever they go”. They’ve performed at Kingston’s YGK Craft Beer Fest and Toronto’s Lee’s Palace.

The titular birds maybe little, but the full-bodied, colossal instrumentation on their debut single is anything but. Though having an indie-rock foundation, this track is so much more. Adding an insatiable booming bass and some furious horns gives it an extra layer of sheer funkiness. And with the captivating, slightly distorted, vocals, this powerful jam takes your ears on an unexpected sonic trip.
