La Force is Ariel Engle, vocalist and newest member of Canadian indie rock collective Broken Social Scene. The music of La Force is nocturnal electronic pop, featuring Engle's enchanting vocals over dynamic production.

Home Body brings a fresh tangibility to electronic-based music, creating songs that are wildly original. Their sound is sort of new-wavy-electronic-a’pop’calyptic-shimmer-core that’s down to earth, vivid and visceral. Magnetic live, their animated performances include frenzied dancing and dramatic manual light manipulation, resulting in a feverish spectacle which amplifies their music.

La Force is Ariel Engle, vocalist and newest member of Broken Social Scene. The music of La Force is nocturnal electronic pop, featuring Engle's enchanting vocals over dynamic production.

Her presence resounds on Broken Social Scene’s 2017 album, Hug Of Thunder, lending fluid, commanding vocals to the oblique anthem “Stay Happy,” and leaving an indelible mark on the collective’s rousing performances. Stepping up to the role first helmed by the immeasurable talent of Leslie Feist, Engle brings La Force's singularity to the familial energy of Broken Social Scene.

Born out of the culmination of AroarA – her musical project with husband and Broken Social Scene bandmate Andrew Whiteman – La Force is a deep reflection on the magic and dismantlement of motherhood; the never-ending tightrope walk of life, and death; and the re-discovery of self.

First single “You Amaze Me” layers seductive melodies over restrained electronics. A love song to Whiteman, “You Amaze Me” defines the tender but powerful essence of La Force. Shaped with Warren Spicer of Plants & Animals, and featuring members of Suuns, Patrick Watson, and Broken Social Scene, "You Amaze Me" crystallizes the reverent, spiritual tone of Engle's musical being. Borrowing its identity from the tarot card representing Strength, La Force captures the bold creative spirit of an undeniable voice.
Home Body
Home Body
Fever-pop duo Home Body ignores convention with their vivid blend of new wave, industrial and electronic music, performed from the gut with wild abandon and art-school-cool theatricality. Emerging from the vibrant Western Massachusetts music scene, Home Body plays with form and improvisation while retaining a strong pop sensibility and demanding presence. Balancing textured layers of glitzy synthesizers, focused rhythms, and tectonic bass with strong, stormy femme vocals, the duo creates a visceral sonic landscape that feels equal parts cosmic, fleshy and electric. Live, the duo punctuates their sound with dance and manual light manipulation, reaching beyond their performance to create a high-vibration spectacle that is physically and emotionally moving. www.helloHomeBody.com
