It is September 2012 and you know what that means! It is time to announce the newest addition to Basement Entertainment's 'Band of the Month' line up.
This month the featured band getting the newest spot on our official website comes to you from Toronto, Ontario.
Not only is this band from a large city, but they are certainly making a big name for themselves in the local music scene. And, their talent, along with their incredible EP, are not going unnoticed.
From Toronto, Ontario, Crystalyne is the band taking this month's featured spot. And, as I said in their 'Song of the Week' article, posted earlier in August of 2012, Crystalyne is definitely a band to watch out for.
Marissa Dattoli (vocals), Josh Given (guitar / backing vocals), Justin Niece (bass) and Scotty Blake (drums) started the band in 2011. Since then, they have gone on various tours and released several acoustic videos, covers and official music videos on their Youtube Channel. On top of that, these four have also accumulated just over one hundred and fifty thousand views in the process.
Again, as I have previously said, Crystalyne always leaves me searching for words. Their breathtaking EP, titled Navigate, was released on June 5th 2012. And, of course, their fans went nuts, writing positive reviews all over the internet. They even grabbed the attention of the very well known magazine Alternative Press.
The six track EP this band released is one you should definitely pick up on iTunes very soon. Not only is each song incredibly written, but the lyrics are absolutely incredible, for a lack of a better word. Plus, Crystalyne have already released official music videos for their tracks Wolves, Weapon and, most recently, Navigate. And, of course, just like their music, the official music videos are perfect as well.
The journey revolving this miraculous band into the music scene is certainly one everyone needs to watch. It is truly amazing seeing how far they have gotten themselves already. And, it is really just the beginning of what will surely come their way.
So, once again, I will have to leave it at that. Crystalyne have obviously left me speechless so all I will say is to look them up yourself and discover their talent. Marissa, Josh, Justin and Scotty will most definitely blow you away with their talent and pure musical skills, not to mention their incredible personalities.
I really cannot wait to watch this band continue to take over the music scene.
