The Statistics are a pair of brothers from Prince George who play alternative rock. Comprised of Darby and Erin Yule, the Statistics have already achieved considerable feats: being nominated “Best Out of Province Act” at Toronto Indie Music Awards, working with Cone McCaslin (Sum 41); selling out hot spots such as The Media Club, Blackbird Cafe, The Cellar, and The Railway Club; playing Canadian Music Week, Crankworx Whistler, headlining Kispiox Music Festival with Cardboard Crowns, and headlining UBC Goosehunt Festival.
Their latest release is Haunts, a six-song EP produced by Paul Boechler and recorded at Fader Mountain Studios in Vancouver. The EP showcases the jangly punk edge of their past, but easily slips in some Brit-pop threads. With a highly interactive live show, The Statistics often generate more energy on stage than bands twice their size.
“We were told that we were going to become statistics of the music industry, so that’s what we decided to call ourselves.” says frontman Darby Yule.
This is Thorwind’s description of themselves: “take your hand, summon feelings from your darkest corners as your fingers curl into a fist. Then slowly, delicately lower it into a universe of warm milk.” Okay.
