With style and wit, The Holiday Crowd give proper nods to the once hallowed rock'n'roll ideals of cool aesthetic and jangly melodies. Lead singer Imran Haniff, first met of the band's guitarist Colin Bowers in high school in the Toronto suburb of Scarborough. Haniff was impressed with the Stone Roses t-shirt Bowers was wearing and that very day they developed a strong bonding friendship and songwriting partnership. The addition of old friend David Barnes on drums and newcomer Alex Roberts on bass guitar completed the band.
Self described as minimal and stripped-down, The Holiday Crowd's sound and lyrics arise from all manner of experience- summer afternoon camaraderie's, introspective reveries and a few shapely 'inspirations' along the way. From their haircuts to their shoes and with a nonchalant but forceful attitude, the band truly 'send' the listener to that place in the sun.
