The Statistics come at you with a garage band intensity, a terse, no-gimmicks attack that’d make Jack White proud. In fact, maybe Mr. White should call these Cannucks who’ve already won a top award at the recent Toronto Indie Music festival. “Sparks In The Night” is crafty, catchy and bursts from the speakers with plenty of indie-rock energy–and we like Darby Yule’s vocals, which sit high in his throat. “Maryanne” is a tribute to a childhood sweetheart that has power-pop touches. But just when you thought you could pigeonhole this band, there’s the yearning “True North” which is infused with classic c&w guitar twang and sweet lines like this: “My soundtrack that summer was your voice in the breeze.”
