THE YOUNG PIXELS are Danny and Tricia Turner, a married garage-pop duo from rural Manitoba. The pair switch equally between electric guitar, drums and harmonizing vocals to create a simple rock 'n roll sound that is both gritty and melodic. "Cool, heart-tugging crunchy guitar-based indie rock...think Neil Young and Pixies." - Grant Lawrence, CBC Radio 3 host, CBC Searchlight.
The Pixels' upcoming EP, "Fever of Becoming" is an introspective offering for the truth-seeker, thinker and dreamer. It explores themes of identity, worth, purpose, belonging and ambition. It's the story of the human desire to move toward the dream that calls, the limitations we all must face, and who we become along the way. For the Turners, it's the challenge to balance artistic yearnings with family life and responsibilities. The EP is set for release April 13, 2018.
The band was formed shortly after the birth of their first child 10 years ago. Since then, the duo has released 3 albums and an EP, and played venues and Festivals across Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario. Their songs have recieved national radio play on CBC Radio One and been featured in a short film, and their album "For The Love" reached number 3 on the University of Manitoba charts.
When not making music, the couple live an unschooling and organic farming lifestyle with their 3 young sons near Kenton, Manitoba.
