SAM ROBERTS BAND (Montreal, QC)


From the anthemic call for solidarity of “We’re All In This Together” to the electro­thump of “Chasing The Light,” ‘Lo­Fantasy’ is indeed the most wide­ranging collection Sam Roberts has ever written, infusing his particularly rousing brand of rock and roll with elements of funk, house, electronic, and African music. Throughout all of this, his lyrics grapple with greater questions of identity and self­discovery in the modern age. “That’s the test of a rock and roll song or a pop song to me,” Roberts says. “It’s to confront those issues in three or four minutes, to get to a place where the music itself helps bring you towards some enlightenment, or at least some resolution to those big questions.”
