push3 layers voice, electric cello and electric guitar to create wonderfully strange music that you have not heard before. We are a Vancouver based indie band and have been writing, playing and recording together for 13 years.
Our songs begin in the typical way with a chord chart, lyrics and guitar parts. Then the real push3 work begins. We ignore the rules, tear the songs apart and create music that is rarely traditional in structure. There is always a twist.
Melanie’s electric cello replaces the traditional lead guitar and winds around Kathryn’s lush vocals and electric guitar. Cello and voice are used in unexpected ways with percussive words and whispers and ghostly cello harmonics and slides.
Our latest songs are all about moments, split second moments, where you run away, stay, breathe or stop. There are pieces of these moments woven like threads throughout the new music.
