The Achromatics transmit sound and experience without distinguishing between genres. A truly Canadian band, it’s their mission to create good music that is accessible to everyone.

The Achromatics are an exciting, high-energy band that delivers a perfect combination of Latin/funk-based grooves and catchy pop hooks.  The lead vocals are dynamic and the solid rhythm section backs an impressive female horn section of accomplished instrumentalists who deliver pitch-perfect harmony vocals.  The writing is strong, as is the message.  This is a fun group whose future is very bright.” – Will Jarvis

“They move effortlessly between R&B, Blues, Soul, Pop, tasty Funk, Jazz and Latin/world styles.” -Beverly Kreller, SPEAK Music.

“There’s nothing black & white about Give Me That Beat from this TO-area 9-piece who are on a musical mission to be danceably accessible to all. Lots of funk, Latin and the sweetest backup vocal chorus I’ve heard in some time” – Cal Koat, Album Cover of the Week.
