‘Bend Sinister?! Who are they?’
Is the general response that I seem to get whenever my latest addiction are mentioned to anybody. Which is rather surprising seeing as this band have been busy producing music since 2001.
It seems that Bend Sinister have for over a decade been one of Vancouver’s best kept secrets. Yes, definitely aren’t one of the most ‘dynamic’ bands this year, especially when you compare frontman Dan Moxon to other bands who are equally established such as Kasabian’s Tom Meighan.
But Bend Sinister fit neatly into the progressive-rock genre. However they tend to describe themselves as storytelling rock, a category invented just for them, and with such creative lyrics it’s hard to disagree.
