Solids are a relatively new guitar/drums duo from Canada, but they aren’t another White Stripes/Black Keys clone (thank god!). The band is heavily influenced from 90’s alternative rock and for the most part wouldn’t sound too out of place in a mix tape from Seattle’s glory days. Their sound is pretty much emo (think Sunny Day Real Estate or Modest Mouse) buried in layers of feedback and noise (a la Sonic Youth or Nirvana). Blame Confusion is their (dare I say it?) grungy debut.
