“A certain level of Beatlesinspired melodic creativity is apparent on the eight-song EP just released by Jordan Carrier & the Soviets.” -- Tom Zillich, Surrey Now Newspaper
“It’s hard to not replay the brilliant “To Here,” just to hear its gorgeous chorus break repeat.” – Stuart Derdeyn, The Province
For three times in the last 2 years, the walls at Vancouver’s legendary Commodore Ballroom shook with a thousand people shouting “Club People, they got no f–king soul”. The newly minted Jordan Carrier and the Soviets brought the anthems and the crowds did the rest. Infectious melodies, powerful rock songs performed by a killer band and a singer whose intensity is almost scary.
Jordan recorded the solo album Absence Of Wonder (“one of the best local releases of the year” – Tom Harrison, Vancouver Province) . From that record came the single “Club People”, a local hit on 99.3 The Fox after Carrier and his new found band the Soviets scaled to the top of Vancouver Seeds, the legendary showcase that spawned Daniel Wesley, Nickelback, and Bif Naked, among others. “Club People” became one of the most requested songs that year and launched the band into a streak of high profile opening gigs. Jordan Carrier and the Soviets have since shared the stage with Loverboy, Daniel Wesley, Wide Mouth Mason, Odds, Marcy Playground, Thornley and, most recently, Trooper. “I think that the bigger acts know that we’ll do the leg work for them, whipping up the crowd and frying the stage… It happens every time.” The sophomore effort is big album that rocks, breathes, and lingers -- modern anthems to wake those still asleep.
