Artist Profile: Borderline Clover

Borderline Clover is an indie rock band from Guelph ON. Although I have not seen too much coverage or heard too much of a buzz behind this band I am very impressed with their work. Soft vocals like Belle and Sebastian before them with an indie/classic rock edge. The song "The sundance social" has a classic rock heart inside of an indie rock song. This is not your average coffee shop indie band. Complicated breakdowns and the incorporation of a number of different instruments make sundance a notable song. In contrast a song like "Teacup" has a bluesy jam band sound to it. A touch of mystique in the sound of the song with the wavering trumpet in the background and some psychedelic effects during the breakdown. This band adds variety even within its music with lots of variance and solo's to be found sometimes even in the same song. If the band were to get some more buzz they could take off on the indie scene. I will keep my eye on Borderline Clover and I am anxious to see what the future holds for them.
