Topanga is Stefan Babcock, Nestor Chumak, Zack Mykula and Steve Sladkowski: four childhood friends that write catchy, riff-heavy songs.
They’ve gained a reputation for their rambunctious live shows, sharing the stage with Young Rival, The Darcys, The Pack a.d., Born Ruffians, and Sloan. They made the bill for Pop Montreal, NXNE and CMW.
Hollerado took a shine to Topanga’s 4 song EP online, taking the band on tour and releasing the 7 inch “Oceans” on their label, Royal Mountain Records. “Oceans” was produced by Jon Drew (Tokyo Police Club, Arkells, F*ked Up).
An acoustic version of their song “The Shield” is available on a recent War Child compilation.
Topanga plays The Horseshoe with The Pack a.d. Oct 26th.
