Fresh roots duo sounds from Toronto
Through their rich but rustic sound, Toronto roots-rock duo The Young Novelists deliver a dose of honesty in audible form. Frontman Graydon James (who has published one novel) and his wife, Laura Spink, have been making great strides up the musical ladder in both Canada and the U.S. On their new album, "Made us strangers," "were looking to inject a bit of excitement and edginess into it this time around,” Graydon says, “but also wanted the recordings to be more organic and true." The album hinges on interpersonal relationships—both traditional and non-traditional ones—from brothers in a band to a torrid love triangle to a new father missing the sound of his son’s voice when they’re apart.
