UPDATE: This contest is now closed, the winner has been notified by email.

The Morning Benders have a knack for beautiful symphonic arrangements. Christopher Chu’s voice rings with elegance atop bellowing drums and swelling guitars. Their album, Big Echo, sounds energetic and eager, and with an eleven day production time, breathes a sense of urgency. The quartet harmonizes like a folk band and resonates like a baroque ensemble. The Morning Benders possess a versatility that embraces jangly psychedelia and indie pop sensibilities. The result is a surge of unavoidable exuberance and graceful instrumentation.

On Friday, November 5, the Morning Benders will be joined by Twin Sister and Oberhofer at Toronto’s Mod Club. If their debut record was any indication, the Morning Benders are apt to hit the city with a big sound and an even bigger echo. Ca Va Cool has a pair of tickets to give away for the show, courtesy of Collective Concerts. To win, send an email with “Big Sound Big Echo” in the subject line and your full name in the body to This contest closes this Wednesday, November 3 at midnight.
