LOCATION:Halifax, NS

COUSINS, is bare bones, a playful and dynamic guitar and drum/vox two piece.Formed in the spring of 2009, COUSINS features Pat Ryan on Guitar, Aaron Mangle on drums and vocals.The songs reflect a playful attitude towards life in a small city and the merging of art practice and rock n’ roll. Inspiration is drawn from scraps of paper written by children, news stories about teens smashing cars, and narratives inferred from old 35mm slides.The show is loud, poetic, and potent. People dance and push each other a bit but only because they're happy. Some say COUSINS like a mountain, others say it's like creeping fog. There are screams and whispers, smashing, chunks and melody. The songs reflect a playful attitude towards life in a small city and the merging of art practice and rock n’ roll. Inspiration is drawn from scraps of paper written by children,news stories about teens smashing cars, and narratives inferred from old 35mm slides. Cousins combines reaching falsetto vocal lines with jangly, echoing and chunky guitar complimented by loud and syncopated drums. Cousins is inspired by genre-bending and experimental groups such as Deerhoof, The Shaggs, Cryptacize, Thee Oh Sees, but alsowith references to classic Canadian rock legends, Neil Young, Shotgun & Jaybird, and Gord Downie.
