Turn Into Vapour
Forward Music Group
Made up of members of The Superfantastics and The Establishment, Halifax’s Sleepless Nights are the closest thing the city has to a supergroup. Like its members’ musical origins, Turn Into Vapour is a summation of everything the Halifax indie scene can offer. The lyrics are smart but unselfconscious, the music ambitious without burying the pop hooks and the production clean but retaining a raw edge. Early standouts include “Got Caught” and “Allyson Got Robbed” with its memorable refrain, “get your goddamn hands of off my girl.” This one should find a lot of action on iPods and at parties for the rest of the year.
