Victoria, BC based alt pop/rock band 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.
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 Nocturnal, the band toured nationally with performances at Indie Week, Canadian Music Week, BreakOut West, and Rifflandia Music Festival, opening for Sam Roberts Band, The Pack A.D., and Head of The Herd.
