They create luscious bubbly rock with a dream pop element. Ethereality mixed with crunchy guitars and a propulsive force within each song. Plus they're both really cute.

Album Notes
Wanderlust - the first full length cd from this north of the border duo known as Chicklet. Daniel Barida and Julie Park deliver twelve tracks of disarmingly melodic rock with a dream pop element. Ethereality mixed with crunchy guitars and a propulsive force within each song. From the bouncy opening of "Superficial" to the haunting "White Flag", Chicklet has the ability to make you get up and dance as well as send shivers. Lyrically sharp, sometimes wry and witty, sometimes introspective, these natives of Toronto, Canada prove they are real contenders in the indie pop world.
Do you like to take a walk after a cool summer rain? Do you like to drive down the highway with the sun shining, the windows down and the stereo up? Do you like to dance, listen and then dance some more? This is the soundtrack for you.

The Chicklet Bio:

Something new. That was what drove Daniel Barida and Julie Park into the studio in the summer of '95. The collaboration was mostly for fun and meant as a side project from their respective guitar-washed bands. At the time Daniel was still involved in Groundcover while Julie was busy in her band Brill.
Both bands had become mainstays of the Toronto indie pop/shoegaze scene. It was a trip to Livonia, Michigan to record the song "Shellac" at Warren Defever's (His Name is Alive) home studio that led Daniel and Julie to believe that something good could actually come of this. Several months later, they broke up their respective bands, christened their musical project Chicklet, and concentrated on developing their own unique sound. What resulted was " Daisy Smile and Kitty ", a four-song cassette released in January of 1996. The songs' attractive harmonies were supported by an often ethereal moodscape. In April 1996, they released "3 ", a six-song cassette which experimented with a more keyboard oriented sound.
That summer, Chicklet signed on with Satellite Records, an indie label based in Pasadena, California. Satellite released the vinyl 7 inch "Premiere" in April 1997. The three songs were culled from their first two cassettes and received enthusiastic reviews in the United States, Canada and Europe. With Daniel and Julie remaining the core of the band, they recruited friends to fill in for live shows. In December 1997, the Warren Defever-produced version of "Shellac" was featured on "Splashed with Many a Speck " a compilation CD, released on L.A.'s Dewdrop Records.
1998 was a busy year for Chicklet. Satellite released five new songs by the band on the cd/ep titled "Lemon Chandeliers ". It was followed by a highly successful tour of the U.S. in the early summer on which the band made many new friends. One of these friends, dj Rodney Bingenheimer of the Los Angeles based radio station KROQ, has played Chicklet on his show every week since. By years end, Daniel and Julie had completed a video for the song Frown. Early in 1999, work started on their first full length effort, " Wanderlust ". Featuring 12 all new songs with the same fresh sound that they strive so hard to achieve, " Wanderlust " garnered rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Four of the songs have been used on E!'s "Fashion Television" cable t.v. show (shown on City TV in Canada) and the song "Out of Sight" was featured in an episode of MTV's "Daria". Chicklet continued touring and writing over the next couple of years which made them tighter than ever and help hone their songwriting skills. Now, after what seemed like an endless wait, their follow up to "Wanderlust" is here. "Indian Summer" is easily their most mature and tuneful collection yet. Ethereality mixed with crunchy guitars and a propulsive force within each song. Sometimes introspective, and other times bubbly dance pop with a wry twist. Candy for the mind as well as the ears.
