Published Jun 08, 2015Vancouver-based producers Robbie Slade and Peter Ricq comprise indie electro-pop outfit Humans. Their recent full-length debut Noontide is their most polished release to date, a blend of upbeat pop music with dark electronica.
We caught up with the duo when they were in Toronto for Canadian Music Week, where they gave a special performance of "Tell Me" at Kops Records for Exclaim! TV.
Standing in a room plastered with vintage vinyl sleeves and posters, Slade and Ricq's massive board of synthesizers make for an amusing juxtaposition. Then, the band command your attention, as a simple drumbeat is layered with danceable loops, until they've produced a rich, full sound.
Watch their upbeat performance below, then check out Humans' last interview on Exclaim! TV's InTheMix here.
