Dizzy are three brothers – Charlie, Alex and Mackenzie Spencer and their friend Katie Munshaw, who made music to combat the anxieties of the vortex of boredom. Like anyone growing up in the digital age, the band went to basement parties, discovered social media, scraped their knees, fell in love, and felt insecure. Having the suburbs as their playground for experience encouraged them to explore music and art outside of what was right in front of them – and to create their own.
“Oshawa is dense. We all grew up in modern suburbia so there’s an arm’s length between my neighbour’s house and mine.” Said Munshaw. “Making music always stemmed from my being overly sensitive about everything, so when you’re that close to so many people you’re bound to meet the essential characters that screw you up enough to start writing about them. Oshawa introduced me to friendship and heartache and change while keeping me bored enough to sit at home and write about it.”
Dizzy writes songs that are reflective of coming of age in suburbia. Their debut album, Baby Teeth, was released August 2017 and produced by Grammy-nominee Damian Taylor (Arcade Fire, Bjork, The Killers).
