Words by Krystle McGrath. Photo by Nick Styles of Electric Honey Records. Local talent Landos recently released their six-song EP titled Before Time that is both instrumentally and lyrically captivating and relatable, and is perfect for a sunny drive in the car when you’re looking for some fun and easy listening. The four-piece has been making waves since the release of their first EP back in December 2017 titled Simple Things, and although they are relatively new to the Calgary music scene, their music has made it onto every playlist I’ve ever had and this newest release is no exception.
