While Vancouver’s long grey winters may push some musicians into the cardiganed arms of moody indie-rock, Ludic’s explosive and delightfully bright groove-pop is an unhesitating cannonball into the deep end of the pool. Guitarist Ayla Tesler-Mabe (Calpurnia), drummer Rhett Cunningham, and bassist/keyboardist Max Cunningham have yet to turn 21, and already they have chops that’ll make your head snap back. As if that wasn’t enough, they also craft inventive, instantly addictive, and “delightfully off-kilter” (Vancouver Sun) tunes that draw from icons like Stevie Wonder and Steely Dan, and the postmodern soul of Hiatus Kaiyote. The CBC said it: “this wildly original indie-jazz-funk-fused band seems poised for a major breakthrough!”
