Music Around Town

Marianas Trench/Secret Someones

When: Fri., Nov. 20, 8 p.m. 2015

This Canadian band formed way back in 2001 but is only now getting international exposure thanks to the success of its new album, Astoria, which just came out last month. It's the first of its albums that wasn't just issued domestically in Canada. On it, the band effectively pays homage to the '80s with synth-pop melodies and high-pitched vocals. "People touch on the 80s but no one has done the Kenny Loggins and Huey Lewis stuff and we wanted to incorporate some of that — we're products of the '80s and we thought we'd take it back a little bit," says singer-guitarist Matt Webb. "We really like '80s coming of age movies like The Goonies and Back to the Future and we tried to tie some of that in." (Niesel)
