Hailing from Halifax, Nova Scotia, The Contact is composed of Geoffrey Fifield on vocals and guitar, Tim Fifield on bass, drummer Chris Gilks and keyboardist Jordan Allen.
The Contact delivered their last album, Canvas Tears, back in 2007. With a sound reminiscent of Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Keane, Smashing Pumpkins, and Muse all tossed into a blender and smoothed to a silky, yet gritty, goodness. Canvas Tears also included the standout track “Black Sea” which deserves to be on everyone’s “favourites” playlist.
After a long six year wait, The Contact are recording once again. The Antidote received this reply after asking the band about the status of the new album:
The album is coming along well and we’re really excited about how the tracks are sounding. The album will have a different sound compared to Canvas Tears as we’ve been exploring different instruments and sound palettes.
Like The Contact on facebook to keep informed about their recording progress. For the meantime perhaps this lyric video of “Black Sea” will satisfy.
