Municipality (New Music 2016)

A pair of twins in the band means built-in harmony.

You may have already seen biological twins and songwriters Peter and Will Fordham jamming around Halifax at some point in the last few years. But last year they put together their six-piece band Municipality with Seamus Erskine (The Brood), Daniel Crowther, Pete Gillis and Billy Habib Taylor and started making tracks of very modern-sounding indie rock. "Municipality is melody driven guitar pop," says Will, with vocal harmonies of chilled-out perfection. "The harmonies do come from having similar voices. We can trust that we're both on the same page. The songs come from both of us and they are closely related, because we are," he says. "In my mind, the sound of the music is best described as colourful." Adding elements of psych-rock and lo-fi, "it's fun for the whole family," William says. You can catch Municipality playing in Halifax often, and look for a new album coming later this summer.
