Bio

A Denman Island British Columbia electronic pop group, Avro is a writing duo composed of Adam ‘Atom’ Percy and Megan Rose.  

Influenced by synthpop, classic new wave / cold wave, minimal techno, and with a pinch of post punk, Avro first released their first EP ‘Anatomy Act’ in 2016, followed by a full length album ‘Futuretroactivism’ in June 2022, and have a new EP in production for release in late 2023.  

The first single from Futuretroactivism titled ‘Promise Notes’ was released with a video that has garnered thousands of plays across social media, and charted across Canadian college radio.  

Promise Notes was also bolstered with dance and cinematic remixes by electronic artists Quick Kick and Snoog, and the track ‘Cobalt Dreams’ received remix love by electronic beatmaster Righteous Racket, accompanied with a dreamy neon remix video. 

After dates like The Woodstove Festival in Cumberland BC, Winter Arts Fest in Vancouver, Rogue Festival on the BC Sunshine Coast, and a spring 2023 tour across Ontario and Quebec promoting Futuretroactivism, Avro has crafted an energetic stage show that has kept audiences moving to their tight darker rhythms and hypnotic vocals. 

Avro is currently locked into their secret island studio base and mixing their next as yet untitled EP for release in early 2024.

"With their first album Futuretroactivism, keyboardist Megan Rose and composer Atom Percy have created a unique project that unites present and future, taking away the anguished weight of the past. In their songs (such as the sublime “Promise Notes”) they speak of a dystopian future in which addictions, insincerity and vices rule." - Dimitra Gurduiala, Atwood Magazine

"...an amazing synth pop banger with a kind of a tragic momentum and serious lyrics." - Thomas Frenken, Electrozombies.com

 "“Promise Notes” is a love-note to the likes of Human League." - Mark Anthony Brennan, Irregular Dreams

Shows

It's a Cumberland live electronic music night, featuring Moonbean, Avro, and Nakatomi!

Moonbean is a queer, Toronto-based electronic duo who lace their live, synth hardware set with lush vocals. Their experimental synth-pop weaves in psychedelia, acid-house, techno, and disco, while their performance style harkens to a punk aesthetic.

The night also features Denman Island synthpop, classic new wave / cold wave duo Avro. Featuring Atom Percy and Megan Rose, they released their full length album ‘Futuretroactivism’ in June 2022, and have a new EP in production for release in spring 2024.

Nakatomi Freefall was formed in Courtenay in 2020 by Corey Rokkett, and Marjie Velour, formerly of Porn On Beta. After 13 years of writer's block and life in general, the pair looked at the lockdown as a time to start fresh with their own signature sound in the Synthwave scene.

Doors at 8pm, music at 8:30, admission is $20.
