Fast Romantics

Fast Romantics have been blurring the lines between modern indie-rock, classic pop, and rock n’ roll for some time, carving their own unique path to radio success. Led by singer-songwriter Matthew Angus, Fast Romantics have begun to earn a loyal following with their irresistible pop hooks, anthemic live shows, and Angus’ emotive and personal approach to lyricism, often infused with the political and social chaos of the times.

Their second LP American Love, produced by the dynamic duo of Gus Van Go and Werner F (Wintersleep, Arkells, Whitehorse) was introduced to the world via their breakthrough single Julia in 2015. “Julia” ended up climbing the commercial and AAA radio charts on both sides of the border, and eventually won the SOCAN national songwriting prize in 2016.

The second single from American Love — the anthemic “Why We Fight”— broke the top 20 on the Canadian alternative rock charts (Mediabase) and hit #1 on the CBC R2 National Charts. Two more singles went on to reach the top 5 on R2 and continue to build up a demand for the band. And as a year of intensive touring for the record wound down in late 2017, Fast Romantics capped it off by being short-listed for the prestigious Anchor Award at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, Germany.

In 2018 and 2019, the band released two singles – “Mexico” and “Do No Wrong” – the latter of which resulted in a second #1 spot on the CBC R2 national charts. This same creative flurry marked the beginning of an exciting phase leading up to their third LP, Pick It Up, released in 2020.
