Cabaret La Basoche

There's something empowering about seeing Montreal's Chances play live. Lead singers Chloé Lacasse and Geneviève Toupin mirror each other with their synth/keyboard set-ups while drummer Vincent Carré sits directly in the middle, forming a circle with the audience and giving the show a sort of pop ceremony feel. Their unique sound is a blend of influences and cultures, mixing indie-pop with a hint of electro and world music, underscored by the english, french-canadian and Metis backgrounds present in the trio. With harmonies weaving in and out of thumping drums and sparkling synths, Chances’ otherworldly pop songs strike like a stream of light to the gut.
