Tearjerker is an indie rock band formed in 2006 in Toronto consisting of Micah Bonte (vocals, guitar), Trevor Hawkins (drums, samples, production), and Taylor Shute (guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards).. They have released four albums under the Sore Thumb label as well as several EP’s. The band’s music has been described as ‘shoegaze’ and ‘dream pop’. Tearjerker, in its current form, operates on instinct and sincerity. They’re less concerned with selling singles than they are with being a prolific group that consistently unveils interesting new music.
