“Five Minutes With” Toronto Indie Rock Band Goodnight, Sunrise

Goodnight, Sunrise is an indie-rock-and-roll-super-fun-dance-party band from Toronto, Canada. Founded in 2011 through a shared love of pop hooks, EDM drops, and the raw power of classic rock, their sound has naturally evolved into a hybrid reminiscent of CHVRCHES, Muse, and July Talk. Armed with confetti, glowsticks, and an abundance of relentless energy, they’ve taken their explosive live show to over 300 audiences across Canada, US, and Europe, opening up for Bon Jovi, Monster Truck, and The Sheepdogs along the way.
