Today, Toronto band, The Effens, have released their third EP, Eventually, via Hidden Pony and the group’s own LootBag Records. The culmination of years of feverish experimentation and lineup rotations, lead vocalist and guitarist, Austin Nops (the nucleus of The Effens) connected with Paul Theo (guitar and synth/samples), Hannah Weber (bass and vocals), and Fabian Oblivion (drums) through jam space-meet-cutes and last-minute show fill-ins.
Eventually – including the focus track, “Step Dog,” a grunge-rock take on a Springsteen-esque escape from this dead-end town song – is available to stream via your preferred platform now.
“Step Dog” captures a naive, determined person overcoming the difficulties of life and coming out the other side intact. It’s a loud, free, triumphant close to Eventually.
