About the artist
“Film noir influenced instrumental surf music” 
Born out of a shared love of surf culture, tattoos, motorcycles, and hot rods, Rob Day and Chris van Keir created The 427’s as a throwback to days spent at the beach and nights spent on the strip. Formed in 2013 and influenced by early '60s surf music, spaghetti westerns, and film noir, The 427’s released their debut EP, “Surf Noir” in 2014, which was nominated for “Instrumental Recording of the Year” at the Western Canadian Music Awards. After having their music featured in mountain biking, snowboarding, and surfing documentaries, the band self-released their debut full-length, “Mavericks”, which spent seven weeks on the !earshot National Top 50 charts, including two weeks in the Top 20. In 2016, in continuing to expand their sound and vision, they brought bassist Eve Hell and drummer Wrayne Ramone into the fold and won a local award for best live show. After providing the soundtrack to a Maclean's magazine feature on river-surfing and spending much of late-2017 writing and recording, the band has now released their second full-length album, "Stay Gold", which was recorded at Public Lunch Studios in Calgary, Alberta and mixed by Dallas Good of The Sadies. As Slams Reviews states, "It's smart and sexy surf that will definitely colour you impressed. Highly recommended."
