A malady for melody, nursery rhymes for grown-ups or melodic throbbing angst. You choose, but it's all delivered by Halcyon Loop in an alternative rock drip sure to elevate and entertain.
The trio of guitarist Cian Homeniuk, bassist and vocalist Ignatius Trent and drummer Brandon de Gans, form the nucleus of this sonic union.
The name Halcyon Loop refers to being in a repeating loop of Halcyon Days represented by the blissful narcosis and exuberance of youth. It is an idyllic place free from worry, filled with love, energy and hope where nothing matters. There is only the here and now.
Did you ever wish you could have seen a band like Soundgarden, or The Beatles or Nirvana or Smashing Pumpkins in a small club before they were famous? Well, now's your chance.
Just three individuals with diverse musical backgrounds. IgT knew drummer Brandon played in awesome Edmonton punk band, The Dead Fibers. The two worked in the same building and one day, IgT asked Brandon if he would be interested in playing with him.
That was March of 2022. Since, the band has had a shotgun start playing shows around Edmonton and Alberta. With a number of shows played, the lads are off to a stellar start.
The recent addition of Cian Homeniuk on guitar from the wonderful Wax Duplex in January 2023 has been a natural fit.
Recording a debut album has started. Drums are down, vocals and bass are in the can. Hopefully in the coming weeks the guitars will be added, then it's mixing.
