Borscht (2018)

Edmonton, AB

If Borscht had been a band in the ‘90s, they’d have been on every awesome teen movie soundtrack. Maria Martire’s songwriting vehicle mixes grunge and pop to tackle subjects like candy, making out and even mental illness. On stage, her seven-piece ensemble has the snazziest backup dancers around and costumes straight out of a neon dream. With a debut full-length just around the corner, now is an extremely promising time to catch them on stage.
