The Balconies playing Battle Royale followed by Skinny Dipper at the Cisco Ottawa's Bluesfest on July 12, 2009 at the Blacksheep Inn stage. These songs can be found off their debut album which will be out in September.
You would expect the collaboration of three classically trained University of Ottawa students to be pertaining to composing concertos or scores for Victorian films. But in the case of The Balconies, you will find them in dimly lit bars banging out catchy melodic pop rock to beer-drinking, dancing college kids on weekends. In just under a year, The Balconies have made a name for themselves in Ottawa and Toronto, and have sold a slew of two-song EPs. Known for high-energy live shows, The Balconies have played a handful of unforgettable sets; sharing bills with the likes of The Bicycles, Sister Suvi, Green Go, Whale Tooth, Dinosaur Bones, and more. The band will be releasing their debut album in the summer of 2009, displaying a unique brand of girl/boy-fronted, harmonious, epic pop to new stages and ears across the country.

The Balconies are barely a year old, but what's been coming out at this trio's early shows sounds as textured and tapered as the fashiony couple at the band's core. Jacquie Neville and Liam Jaeger started the band last December as a streamlined side projectThey recruited Jacquie's kid brother Steve Neville (bass, vocals) and started hashing out punky, overcast, girl-guy tradeoff tunes. - The Ottawa Citizen

The three split songwriting and vocal duty, each bringing to the table diverse and eclectic styles, influences, and impressive vocal range (particularly on the part of the female Neville). The result is a blossoming blend of classic and garage rock, catchy pop hooks, and bass lines which twist and groove through an unquantifiable list of influences and genres. - Bridging the Atlantic Blog
