Stream Le Trouble’s Tireless ‘Reality Strikes’ EP

First proper effort from Canadian showmen lands November 5 via Lava

Back in September, Le Trouble unleashed “Real Talk (Part 2),” the deliriously dancey first single from the Montreal fivesome’s debut EP, Reality Strikes. Now, days ahead of the collection’s November 5 release, the genre-hopping maximalists — who pride themselves on trying to “ride that thin line between Meat Loaf, Hall and Oates, and punk” — have shared the entire six-track effort. For a slick synthesis of dreamy balladry (“Fine Line”), fidgety guitar-work (“Mission Bell”), and arena-ready power-pop (the title track), scroll down to stream the Reality Strikes EP in full.
