Sheer Mag at the Rickshaw Theatre, Vancouver, Monday night. Vancouver bands woolworm and BB opened.
The band is about midway through a North American tour for its 2017 album Need to Feel Your Love. Pitchfork awarded the album an 8. “On their debut LP, Sheer Mag keep biting at the forbidden fruit of 1970s hard rock. They dance the line between proto-metal and power pop on songs about romantic obsession and societal oppression,” writes Stuart Berman.
The album is the group’s official debut full-length; it follows three EPs. Vocalist Tina Halladay fronts the Philadelphia band.
