Chicklet PREMIERE Vinyl Record
Chicklet are Julie Park (vocals, guitar) and Daniel Barida (guitar, vocals, synth). Chicklet started as a side project. Park had just left the band Brill while Barida's band Groundcover had recently split. Chicklet recorded, produced and independently released Daisy Smile and Kittyin 1995 and played live shows throughout Toronto. In 1996, Chicklet were invited to Livonia, Michigan to record the song Shellac, which was recorded and produced by legendary 4AD musician/producer Warren Defever of His Name is Alive. The song attracted the attention of California's Dewdrop records and was included on the compilation Splashed with many a Speck. Later that year, Chicklet signed with California's Satellite Records which marked the release of their first Satellite recording, Premiere. The recording was released on semi-transparent purple 7' vinyl, and introduced the band to a larger audience while attracting positive reviews from press in both the USA and Europe. In 1997, Chicklet recorded an EP titled Lemon Chandeliers at Toronto's Audiolab Studio with Chris Hegge. Chris Sytnyk recorded bass while Barida played the drums on all the tracks. Park and Barida followed up with a full-length album Wanderlust in 1998, which was also recorded in Toronto at Audiolab studio. Still without a live drummer, Chicklet toured extensively across the US to support Wanderlust. Sean Bettam played bass while the band performed with pre-recorded drums on stage. While on tour, Chicklet was interviewed on KROQ-FM in Los Angeles where Rodney Bingenheimer invited the band on his live radio show 'Rodney on the Roq'. Later, Johnny Marr (ex-The Smiths) and Rodney introduced the band while performing at Cafe Bleu in Hollywood California. Chicklet charted on the Billboard (magazine) college radio charts with the album Wanderlust. Their second full length album Indian Summer was released in 2003 which was recorded and self produced in their home studio and mastered by Chris Perry. Sytnyk once again recorded the bass lines. Chicklet once again supported the album by touring the eastern US States. Now magazine voted Chicklet as the 'hottest obscure indie band in Toronto'. The obscurity in their hometown is due to Chicklet's conscious effort to focus on a broader audience. The fanbase tends to be out of Canada. The songs, 'Kyopo' and 'Sleep Talking" was used in the Canadian television show Fashion Television while 'Frown' was included in the MTV's Daria. Ink 19 says: 'This Canadian pop duo make simply beautiful, transcendent dream pop records that you can't get out of your head or remove from your CD player for weeks on end.'
