Juno nominated Drip Audio Recording Artists Inhabitants are a dynamic quartet who continue to evolve and transform their music while becoming one of Vancouverʼs most original bands. Through solid ensemble musicianship and brave compositional prowess they have pushed into new sonic territory with recordings and live performances of spacious and expressive explorations of chaos and form.
Inhabitants come to the Western Front to participate in a residency and performance where they will utilize a week of recording at the onsite sound studio culminating in a performance in the Luxe Hall. The project revolves around a new major composition commission by the bandʼs trumpeter JP Carter.
During the recording residency and live performance Carter will be joined by band mates Dave Sikula on guitar, bassistPete Schmitt and drummer Skye Brooks.
“Inhabitants craft a wicked brew, blending cathartic noise, solid rhythmic patterns and deft melodic passages.
Hypnotic and dense, these Inhabitants occupy territory that will continue to yield riches with further exploration.
