Oshawa's courtiers of leafy court pop, Dizzy, bring their dreamy suburban sounds to the Field Trip Music and Arts Festival this weekend, June 2 and 3. The festival at Fort York & Garrison Common in Toronto also includes Metric running through all of their 2009 album, "Fantasies" plus Bahamas, Japandroids, Damien Jr. Gong Marley, the Yeah Yeahs Yeahs, Alvvays, Deer Tick, Partner and more.
Dizzy were most recently at the Great Escape Festival in Britain. Charlie Spencer of the band says it was quite the experience.
"Great Escape was beautiful, Brighton is a great town and the shows were rammed," he says.
The band of three brothers (Alex, Mack and Charlie) and singer Katie Munshaw have also announced they have signed a couple of deals around the globe. They are signed to Royal Mountain in Canada.
"We've signed a deal with Communion for records and publishing for the UK and Europe. We've also signed to a label called Inertia in Australia. It means good things for the band, lots more people working to help us push the singles/videos, and the record due out by the end of summer," he says.
They will be playing the end of summer Royal Mountain at Raspberry Festival taking place Sep 2 at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton but before that trip its Field Trip time.
