Mariana’s Trench has hit the 10 year mark as a major headliner in the Canadian music industry. When the band appeared on the scene a decade ago, many critiques saw them as a emo-rock band who would fizzle out with time. Mariana’s Trench out-did the critiques and soared to newer heights, gaining spots on adult contemporary radio and video spins on Much Music. For a band as charismatic and creative as this one, Video is one of their strongest suits.
Last week, the band, supported by Walk Off The Earth, put on a fun show at The Air Canada Centre! Now, Walk Off The Earth, who caught the public’s attention with their odd and quirky covers on Youtube, had the crowd shouting, dancing, stomping their feet. At first, we thought there would be a disconnect between the two bands, only because they are so different. Some would classify them in different genres, but after it was all said and done, the pairing made logical sense. It was pure, honest fun for the entire night. The pairing turned out to be perfect.
