Formed over a decade ago, Vancouver-based In Medias Res have risen from a fledgling act full of potential to one of the most lauded indie-rock bands in the city, whose recent release has them poised to reach new heights. Three years ago, after touring extensively, selling out multiple pressings of their Intimacy EP and debut album Of What Was, and establishing a passionate fan base across the country, the band went back into the studio. Re-teaming with esteemed local producer Jonathan Anderson (Aidan Knight, Stablio), the quartet intended to best their previous effort, which had been met with glowing reviews and sales of over 2000 copies. But then life intervened. Rumors spread of the band’s demise as the album was slow in coming; meanwhile, the band rewrote, rerecorded, and remixed. In the assured hands of Dave Carswell and John Collins (The New Pornographers, Destroyer, Tegan and Sara) the album finally found its form: It Was Warm and Sunny When We First Set Out, a new release by In Medias Res.
