Programm

Story

The band is a quartet of kindred spirits from Toronto, Ontario, united by their mutual desire to seamlessly blend their esoteric musical tastes into something ineffable and new. Krautrock with an abundance of melody. Electronic with organic expression. Shoegaze with personality. The result is nothing short of a futuristic expression of the current day. Lush space and heavy drums make themselves at home among pulsing electronics and squelching guitars.

Programm’s debut LP (Out on The Hand!) reviewed at Silent Shout!

“Their attention to detail is a thing to behold – the number of layers to be found in this record, and every note and sound seems to be meticulously chosen. Programm have a vision and it has found its ultimate realization here. Can’t wait for what this band does next.”

“…meaningful themes packaged in lush soundscapes, just in time for summer.”  

03-21-2015

Quick Before It Melts features Programm’s cover of the Clinic classic.

“Programm’s version strips any of Clinic’s chart-courting populist tendencies away to reveal a song with dark undertones, and haunting passages. Where Clinic went on Letterman wearing surgical masks to play this song, I picture Programm wearing balaclavas and carrying Grim Reaper-style staffs. And I like it.”

03-13-2015

Fantastic review of the new Programm EP from Silent Shout.

“Their stellar 4-track EP, Like the Sun, conjures up synesthetic memories of rainy summer nights; how the trees crackle as the breeze sways their branches, how the warm smell of rain liberates the smell of summer…”
