Wendy Versus

Electropop meets lyricism, Toronto’s WENDY VERSUS actually lives somewhere between deep ocean and outer space. Juxtaposing organic and machine, their songs are powerfully heartfelt but also make you move your feet.

After her third solo album Stop/Start (2008), singer/songwriter/keyboardist Wendy Leung itched for reinvention. Craving a sound that was melody and beat-driven, she, with fellow Papermaps bandmate Dean Marino (guitar/vocals) and Owen Norquay (drum machines/bass/ vocals), stripped her songs to their barest form, started with voice and machines and built everything else around them.

Recorded in Toronto and mixed in New York City, Crayon Wars is the debut album for WENDY VERSUS, the band born of this new collaboration. Wendy is on a constant mission to evade her classical pianist roots and embrace the electro-pop virus that’s infected her dark melancholic heart. Dean’s shoegazy, dreampoppy, atmospheric guitars expand outside the lines. And Owen’s west-coast indie-rock glitchy chatter-beats and synth lines at once ground and brighten the landscape.

There's an energy about it all. The colours, the shimmers, the vibrant countermelodies – an excitement of bursts and wonders. Listen. This is the music that will infect your soul and light you on fire!
