It’s funny as musicians to be asked what we sound like or who are influences are because not everything we listen to necessarily directly informs our music. Dean and I (Wendy) are in both Papermaps and Wendy Versus but the two bands sound completely different because they draw on different sets of influences.
I grew up listening to radio bubblegum pop, 90′s Can-rock and singer/songwriters. One of my favourites of the latter is DIY songstress Emm Gryner. Her albums have always had the perfect blend of mid-tempo pop hooks and emotive balladry to capture my attention over the years. Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon her latest musical direction with the shvrs bros: pedals, synths, and other wonderous machines?! It makes me happy to see artists I love coincidentally venturing on similar musical paths.
