Choirz Breaks Ground With Sophomore EP Ecdysis

Jan 12 2024

Canadian electro-pop duo CHOIRZ kicks off 2024 with the release of their sophomore EP Ecdysis, and a new music video for the EP’s feature track “Grinding Dirt”. Choirz, who hails from Pembroke, Ontario, emerged from the diverse experiences of lifelong friends Brandon Kennedy and Christopher Chartrand. Kennedy had been a member of several Canadian rock and metal bands including Goat Horn, Zuku, and Flying Fortress, while Chartrand was a member of Kill Cheerleader, Aciidz, Zuku, and was the live drummer for Crystal Castles. Together, along with songwriter/musician Jed Corriveau, who contributes to the songwriting but does not perform live with the duo, craft haunting electro-pop soundscapes, blending intricate synth rhythms with emotionally charged lyrics that delve into the depths of heartbreak. The EP title Ecdysis succinctly encapsulates the lyrical themes of the songs and the current state of the band in a single word. While traditionally associated with reptiles shedding their skin, it aptly conveyed CHOIRZ’s transition from the confines of the jam room to the spotlight of the stage. Additionally, it captured the sentiment of breathing new life into material composed a few years ago that was finally recorded.
