Fast Romantics are quite possibly Canada's next great rock act.
Led by singer-guitarist Matthew Angus, Fast Romantics have been around since 2009 but the band has struggled with finding the perfect match of personalities to bring Angus's highly crafted pop/rock vision forward.
With this most recent lineup, Fast Romantics seem to have found their groove: singer-songwriter Kirty on vocals, acoustic guitar and synth; Jeffrey Lewis on bass; Lisa Lorenz on keyboards; Kevin Black on guitars; and Nick McKinlay on drums.
And it's this lineup that is responsible for the latest Fast Romantics album, American Love, which the band played in Studio 211 for a tight live performance that rivals any other band in Canada.
