CheckList is a six piece band from Trinidad in the West Indies. Coming from a small community CheckList provides an alternative to the Caribbean sound. Choosing to subtly incorporate the sounds of their culture and let the music take them on a cosmic journey. Formed in 2009, the band takes a very layered approach to creating music and remains true to their artistic goals while drawing in the listener with its pop sensibilities. In 2011 the Band released its debut album “Friend.Foe.You.” to critical success. The album featured a collection of songs that the band had written and performed over 2010 and the 1st pressing was sold out within 2 months. In 2014 the band released its sophomore record “The Dawn and Everything That Follows”. Intended to be experienced as a two-part story, it showcases the bands more mature songwriting going from acoustic island-pop to guitar driven post-rock.
2016 saw the band take part in the Canadian program Club New One Releases, where they were paired with Newfoundland natives “Cabbages and Kings”. This collaboration saw the band travel to Newfoundland to write music and film and record songs for release on Canadian airwaves.
