“The mad scientist of the Thunder Bay music scene” [Exclaim! magazine] has been hard at work since his last full-length album was released in 2009. After touring North America incessantly, with music videos featured on MuchMusic, showcases at international music festivals, two EP’s and several award nominations later, De Roover is ready to unveil his newest work.

Written over the past four years, Complexity in Simplicity was produced by Juno-nominated Ben Leggett of Corbeil, ON and De Roover himself.

“Having a producer come in was a big step for me,” De Roover admits, “I’ve self-produced everything before this, but the collaborative production process between Ben and I resulted in some of my strongest writing. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”

The new album was recorded in Thunder Bay, ON at Dining Room Studios, and takes a minimalist approach, musically and visually. Although the recordings still hearken back to his earlier work in terms of complexity, the structures of the various songs emphasize his newfound appreciation of simple yet well-constructed pop songs. To back up De Roover’s signature post-pop sound, the record features live drums and bass in addition to his guitar, vocals and added keys and synths. The album’s 10 songs were funded in part by the Ontario Arts Council and his fans through a crowd-funding campaign.

Complexity in Simplicity will be launched at a special CD release event at The Foundry on March 23rd, and will feature De Roover and his backing band with Dennis Dumphy on drums and Chris Dorota on bass guitar. De Roover will then tour solo across Canada tour for the remainder of March and April.
