jay-arner-album-cover-720x720 (1)Vancouver musician/producer Jay Arner will pass through the province this month with dates in Fredericton, Saint John, Sackville and Moncton, Nova Scotia and PEI. On his latest release Jay II (Mint Records), Arner embraces his love of 80’s new wave pairing many of the sonic characteristics that defined the decade’s pop hits with just enough rock qualities to seamlessly bridge the gap, resulting in a nostalgic collage that walks the line somewhere between New Order and The Diodes.

Arner is touring with fellow west coast musicians and Mint Records label mates, Supermoon, who’s self-described fuzzy-pop sound is at the forefront of their latest album, the May 2016 release, Playland, a double 7” that Exclaim! describes as, “a bright pop record with good dose of surf-rock, but under this vibrant surface are the uneasy feelings that come with stumbling into adulthood”.

Both groups will perform in Fredericton with Sentimentals. The performance, hosted by FLOURISH Festival, will also include a screening of the Michael Mohan short film, Bad News. Mohan shot the Pat Bonner film, Bad Noise, that made its debut during the 2016 Flourish Festival earlier this year in Fredericton.
