Spoutnique releases debut album “My Blue Sky Turns Teal, Vol. I”

Posted by

Evolving on the music scene for almost two years now, Spoutnique is preparing a unique CD release party at the Edmundston Arts Center, Thursday April 13th at 7pm. The event will be an audio-visual presentation of the album, the songs becoming the soundtrack to a short film blending animation and live-action, conceived and directed by singer/songwriter Paul Bourgoin. The following evening the band will be showcasing their groovy and highly energetic dance beats in a live performance at Resto-bar Le Deck at 10pm.

Members of the band include main songwriter Paul Bourgoin (vocals & keys), Daniel Bérubé (guitars, vocals) Jason Guerrette (synths, vocals), Mario Cormier (bass), Denis Nadeau (drums) and Chad Ritchie (percussions, vocals). Experiencing a Spoutnique show is something that leaves no one unaffected. Formed in 2015, the band has performed on various stages in and around Edmundston, NB, including a festival they organized in 2015.

What is Spoutnique? Who is Spoutnique?

Spoutnique's unique sound is a product of singer/songwriter Paul Bourgoin and his musical imaginings. “My Blue Sky Turns Teal, Vol. I” is a project that started out as a 5 song EP, but quickly evolved into a concept album that, becoming too colossal for a single release, was ultimately split into two volumes. The album was recorded and produced by Bourgoin and longtime musical collaborator Daniel Bérubé, who also mixed and mastered the album. It perfectly captures and showcases the Alt-Disco/Electro/Dance Punk stylings of the Spoutnique universe, delivering hypnotic grooves and spacey sounds, fusing Deep House with post punk and electronic undertones. Spoutnique's music transports you through a musical landscape reminiscent of 70’s disco, with a modern twist.

Spoutnique will hold their album release party at the Edmundston Arts Center, Thursday April 13th at 7pm. The admission is FREE and is for ALL AGES. Attendees will be able to experience “My Blue Sky Turns Teal, Vol. I” in its entirety as a mini-movie that will transport them through an interstellar love story which exposes the complications of impersonal communication in the 21st century. Set in a parallel universe blurring the lines between reality and fiction, our hero must leave Earth in the hopes of finding the one who has been tormenting him for years, one electronic message at a time. Is he making the right choice? Is the sacrifice of leaving it all behind worth it? Will he find what he's looking for? Find out for yourself on April 13th at The Edmundston Arts Center and and April14th at Resto-bar le Deck.
