Victoria, BC based alt-pop/rock outfit Fortune Killers (formerly Isobel Trigger) strikes you with their dynamic synth-scapes and high-voltage performances. With exotic vocals, soaring lead lines, and heart-thumping grooves, the band weaves a musical web that pulls your hips into a sultry sway. The lovechild of Lana Del Ray and Metric, Fortune Killers make glitter and grit collide. Having just released their debut album Temper Temper, Rolling Stone calls them “one of Victoria’s best up-and-coming acts.”
Described by Victoria Music Scene as “one of the most entertaining local bands to watch,” Fortune Killers is widely recognized as a band that “has to be experienced live to be fully appreciated” (Ride The Tempo). Since the release of their 2014 EP Nocturnal, the band has toured nationally with performances at Indie Week, Canadian Music Week, BreakOut West, and Rifflandia Music Festival, and many more.
Fortune Killers' debut album Temper Temper features production work from Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, Dear Rouge), Tom Dobzranski (The Zolas, Said The Whale), and Adam Sutherland (Vince Vaccaro). The album showcases the band's love for developing their own tones and samples, modifying and sometimes creating their own instruments. The 10 tracks of Temper Temper are laced together with themes of illusions, desires, and the monsters within.
