Adventure Club, as the name implies, brings a new sound that is brave and bold. The dynamic duo is an electronic dance music pair comprised of Christian Srigley and Leighton James based out of Montreal, Quebec. The group was founded as a hardcore pop-punk band during their high school years but they eventually grew out of that sound. Later on, the pair decided to transition towards electronic dance music scene (EDM). The duo marked the beginning of their career after dropping the song“when?” which is a remix of Daisy” from the album Daisy by the American “Brand New” in 2009. Currently signed to The Standard Group, Adventure Club went on to develop a very electronic sound with heavy drops that leave you wanting more.
Some of the chief inspirations to their sound include:
- Flux Pavilion
- Greeley Estates
