Drawing heavily from 80’s era rock and electronic, the sounds and stylings of Victoria (BC) based four piece Croatia are unapologetically pop.
But behind sugar coated synth lines, cocaine chic, and polished production is something different entirely. With deeply personal lyricism and storytelling, set up against an instrumental backdrop of dance-crazed euphoria, Croatia trades in the tired and outdated pop aesthetics for pure synth seduction.
Carefully crafted vocal hooks and neo-80’s synth melodies become weaved into a feverish live performance, closer to the punk and alt rock acts they grew up and shared stages with as young musicians than their Top 40 contemporaries. Croatia, if anything, is about pop with purpose. And they are creating their own unlikely brand.
Following a string of Canadian summer festival appearances, Croatia is set to release a new EP in spring 2018, following their acclaimed debut album, 2016’s “I Wish I Could Be Holy”.
Croatia is Steve Mitchell, Justin Campbell, Ben Erikson, and Matt Dell.
