T
o perform "Ode to Subterrania," a song about the claustrophobic restlessness of living in a basement from their latest album, Gravez, Hooded Fang invited us into their actual Toronto basement.

Not long ago that would have entailed stepping over trumpets and squeezing by glockenspiels, but they’ve recently pared down from a nebulous 8-piece indie rock collective to a tight, galvanized quartet.

Playing against a Disney blanket backdrop beneath a canopy of Christmas lights, Hooded Fang cruise through the bouncy garage-pop nugget with the locked-in groove of longtime friends who also happen to be bandmates. It's no wonder they run their own label, Daps Records, to showcase their talented comrades in Canadian music.
