About God Spilt The Milk:
Falling somewhere in the world of soul & funk, with a twist of rock n’ roll, God Spilt The Milk brings a unique sound to the Canadian Music Scene. Their mix of rich tones and strong vocals blend through their songs, ranging in topics from heartache and loss, femme-power, all the way to personal growth and environmental appreciation. With original songs written from the heart, there is something for everyone in the audience to connect to. All 5 members of God Spilt The Milk have unique musical backgrounds that range in genres from indie, classical & punk rock, so an exciting blend of songwriting is sure tickle your ears.
Based in Calgary, Alberta this young and energetic group is sure to have you up, dancing and singing along to tunes that will be stuck in your head for the rest of the week! God Spilt the Milk is eagerly anticipating their first EP release in Winter 2020, and their first single debuting in October 2019.
What makes Cheer special? Of course they have classic influences we all love like The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and more; sure they have bad-ass phasers, flangers, and Boss DD-3s, but what really makes them special? The secret lies in their utter commitment to attention to detail. Subtle tone settings and refreshing chord choices mix in with progressive-rock time signatures. They’ve managed to bring in some more modern Australian influenced sounds (Tame Impala, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard) to the mix as well to refresh our palette, and make some new and relevant entries into the prog-psych-pop genre.
Their shared proclivity for classic jams, gritty, raw blues, modern production, time signatures and songwriting brought them together into a 3-piece ensemble churning out jubilant 5 to 8 minute journeys that travel up to 1974 and sound reminiscent of albums like Islands and Atom Heart Mother without straying into the pompous and overblown realm of later era prog.
