:

Toronto electro-pop duo Some Minor Noise sound like descendants of their brooding neighbors, Crystal Castles. The group's new single...[is] the kind of cut that implores you to dance while Void sings with chilling calm-- simple but effective juxtaposition

- Jamieson Cox | Pitchfork
 

 

Some Minor Noise launched from heartbreak and they do a great job projecting those feelings. Some Minor Noise mingles infectious elements of pop and dance with washes of vintage effects. Strong electronic drums take over and are further smoothed by Jane's honey oozed voice

- Briana Cheng | Earmilk
 

 

Toronto in this bitch. Jane Void and Wayne Doe have a sound that skews towards house and dance beats, but she stays firmly rooted in a soft, almost timid place, creating a nice contrast between the two. Void's voice recalls the breathy tones of Braids, floating between atmospheric synths to create a world all their own

- Graham | Pigeons & Planes
 

 

It's a lo-fi electronic space-scape that has the undercurrent of an underwater rave, simultaneously laid-back and energetic

- Graham | Pigeons & Planes
 

 

When she sings lines like, "I was raised by the wolves in my head" - many of them underscored by heavy, ominous beats - she sounds anxious, suppressed, nearly frothing at the mouth

- Michelle Geslanion | Consequence of Sound

Some Minor Noise is music created by Jane & Wayne, and performed by Jane.
 
Formed in the summer of 2012, Some Minor Noise released their first self-titled EP of lo-fi electro noise-pop (out of necessity from using a too-old computer and too-free plug-ins). Since then, SMN has grown from their lo-fi roots into a cleaner but equally energetic style of melancholic electronica.
 
Drawing comparisons to Sleigh Bells, CHVRCHES, as well as fellow Canadian duos Purity Ring and Crystal Castles, SMN have created their own style of sad dance music. They balance dichotomies both musically and lyrically, with heavy beats and lithe melodies and heartbreaking tales sung with a grin. This is music that is both incredibly danceable and deeply personal, with a sound somewhere between experimental noise and heartfelt, hard-hitting pop songs.
 
Some Minor Noise makes music that's about real talk, not small talk; emotions and struggles and whatever the opposite of 'Fronting' is.
 
After receiving online attention from the likes of Pitchfork, the 405, Pigeons and Planes, and many others, SMN saw numerous successes such as radio play in Canada on CBC Radio3 and college stations across the US and Mexico. Their single "Understanding" was featured on iTunes New Artist page, and they were named one of BlogTO's Breakout Toronto Bands.
 
For several years, Some Minor Noise has played in/around their hometown of Toronto at venues both big and small. These include classics such as: The Garrison, Drake, Gladstone, and Silver Dollar, as well as Pianos and Paperbox in NYC. Festivals include Pride Festival, NXNE Last Gang Showcase, and Koi Fest, where SMN shared the stage with the likes of XXYYXX, St. Lucia, Ballet School, Jakubi, Bear Mountain, Kings of the North, Seoul, Moon King, and many others.
 
The band will release its first full-length album "Still Birth" in late Spring 2017, with TBA plans to tour Ontario and Quebec.
