Teddy Romance Making Monsters And Music With Toy-Box And Theatrical Musings To Boot

Alternative rock and pop meets electronic meets theatrical performance—it’s the best way to describe the music and stage shows of Canadian duo Teddy Romance. Following the release of their debut album, Making Monsters (2013), they have since released a video for their single “Summer Magic,” and are working to create a new live act, write a new album, make more music videos and begin touring in the next year.

Formed in 2011, Teddy Romance took not only a wide variety of genres into consideration for their music, including alternative, punk, pop, electronic and sub-genres like IDM and witch house, but they also carefully incorporated the accessories and live performance that would go along with that music. This dedication sets them apart from most other bands not only in their respective genres but in the industry as a whole.

Making Monsters runs the gamut in terms of musical offerings from this pair of creative minds. The title track, “Making Monsters” is a slower, darker piece in terms of both electronic music and lyrics, while “Summer Magic” has a brighter, bouncier vibe. The “Intro” and “Teddy Romance” are more spoken word-like tunes that feature well-crafted and beautiful poetry.

Their video release for “Summer Magic,” off both the Teddy Romance EP and Making Monsters, features lightning fast shots of master performer Mandy Mouse and her partner in crime, Shaun Howells, creating all the music behind the scenes. The song is full of energy with the drive of a punk song along with pop sensibilities and an underlying foundation in electronic music, so the kinetic energy of both the music and the frenetic performance clips meld together to create an impressive video effort.

Teddy Romance takes a playful approach to their music and live presentation. Their studio doubles as both a music hub and a toyshop, which is an integral part of their stage show. They released their toy and accessory line in November 2012 leading up to their debut, self-produced album Making Monsters release in March 2013.

For their latest album, Teddy Romance handled every single aspect of the album and live show themselves. All done in their studio in Gastown, Vancouver, Canada, the duo did all of the songwriting, arranging, producing, engineering, set designs, costumes, album cover design and art, band merchandise, live show development and scripting.

When most bands say “merchandise,” they generally mean a few printed T-shirts and stickers. But for Teddy Romance, their merchandise is just another opportunity to wow and draw in their audience to their unique and highly technical music-making enterprise. Their merchandise includes everything from clothing and accessories to handmade toys (check out the teddy bear on the cover of Making Monsters for an idea).

Teddy Romance are currently putting together the right team to help them achieve still more with their creative and artistic talents. They’re currently developing a new live show, which includes elaborate costuming, performance art and live visual effects. They are also looking to finish in the next three to six months, in which time they will also be working on booking a tour.

They’ll also be filming DIY music videos for all of the singles on Making Monsters, starting in November. Then in January, they plan to create new accessories for their TR line while also starting to write a new album’s worth of music and stage show ideas. They intend to be ready to blow away audiences with their next big round of performances in summer 2014.

For their upcoming shows, Teddy Romance will be playing private parties for both Halloween and New Year’s, the latter actually called “A Teddy New Year’s.” They’ll also be performing at the Carrington Bay Festival in 2014.Their music is currently only available as a digital download through bandcamp.
