Formerly from Kichener-Waterloo, now based in Toronto, An April March almost falls into the '4AD-ethereal-pop' category. Impatiens, their first full length release, consists of beautiful layers of smooth-textured sound: a strong percussive background; a meditative atmosphere; airy, gorgeous, and generally unintelligible vocals.

Impatiens ranks up there among the better ethereal pop albums. Although ethereal pop itself comes in two or three general flavours, if you're a fan of Rose Chronicles, Slowdive, Cocteau Twins, Violet Arcana, His Name Is Alive, and others, you'll probably like the hybrid flavour that Impatiens contains.
