Fast Romantics 

When: Tue., Dec. 12, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $8/12
On the surface, Toronto pop-rockers Fast Romantics seem to represent their lovesick name well on the punchy single “American Love.” But earlier this year, front man Matthew Angus explained to Canadian music magazine Exclaim! that the song has slightly darker connotations relating to how it felt to fall in love “while the rest of the world went mad.” The song artfully describes a blossoming romance set against the backdrop of the global obsession — and explosive fallout — of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Through 11 other tracks, the group delivers an effervescent sophomore album full of singable hooks. Fast Romantics play on Tuesday, December 12, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington.
