Brunch Club: Easygoing Pop Pals Hit the Road

CALGARY – Ellen Reade, a bassist with a passion for jangle pop, wanted nothing more than to start her own band. After begging her friend with a penchant for guitar to join and enlisting the help of a would-be drummer, Reade got her wish. Thus Brunch Club was formed.

The band’s self-titled EP was released in March, and is chock full of tasty bass and guitar licks written by Reade and supported by a peppy cymbal heavy drumline care of Clay Francis. Patrick Earles adds a kick to Reade’s guitar parts, making for an impressive first offering. The six-song debut is youthful: memorable with lovely and assured vocals. It skirts between garage, surf, psychedelic and indie sounds effortlessly, conjuring shared milkshakes on laminated countertops on breezy summer days.

Since incorporating a new drummer in the form of Red Hot Gospel’s Owen Lukawesky, the trio has planned tours both east and west for this summer. To learn more, BeatRoute sat down with the band to get a sense of their fun-loving nature.

BeatRoute: Can you define the genre ‘jangle pop?’

Patrick Earles: Jangly pop, dude. It’s pop that’s jangly!

 

BR: What is your writing process like?

Ellen Reade: They’re all my songs; I write a song on guitar, then I give it to Patrick and he makes it spicy. Then I write bass and Owen does drums.

Owen Lukawesky: I’m usually the last one to come in; the songs are already done when I get there.

ER: Patrick and I will meet up and work on a song together and then add Owen. He’ll play through the song like twice and then have it perfectly.

 

BR: What were you guys listening to while you created this EP?

ER: I’m super inspired by bands like The Vaselines, The Pastels, Heavenly, Black Tambourine and anything on [American indie label] Slumberland Records.

 

BR: What are your plans for the summer?

PE: We’re doing Sled Island, we have a weekend in Calgary/Lethbridge, a weekend out in Saskatoon/Regina and Winnipeg, and then we’re doing a weeklong [British Columbia] tour in August.

 

BR: Do you have anything you want to say to the audience of BeatRoute?

PE: Not that I can think of other than to come to our shows on our upcoming tour, which you can find out more about on our Facebook page!

OL: And that I’m a generous lover.
