Vivek Shraya/Too Attached (AB/BC)
Too Attached are siblings Vivek Shraya and Shamik Bilgi. Shraya is a multidisciplinary artist whose album with Queer Songbook Orchestra, Part-Time Woman, was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize in 2018. Bilgi is a producer and beatboxer who has performed in 15 countries and toured with Method Man and Redman, Bassnectar, and Tanya Tagaq.
Too Attached grew out of Shraya and Bilgi’s childhood history of singing devotional songs together in Edmonton, obsessing over pop and R&B as teenagers, and informally collaborating throughout their individual decade-long artistic careers. The duo released their first EP, Bronze, in 2015 and toured it across Canada while opening for Tegan and Sara.
Most recently, Too Attached were listed as one of IN Magazine‘s 2018 Canadian Artists To Watch, and their newest album, Angry (2018), was described by CBC as one of “Canada’s most incisive, radical and galvanizing albums.”
