Two Hours Traffic

About Two Hours Traffic

Named after a line from Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, Two Hours Traffic are a Canadian indie rock band that blends influences like Big Star, Nick Lowe, and the Cars. Based out of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, the band formed in 2003 when longtime friends Liam Corcoran and Alec O'Hanley joined with fellow University of PEI students Andrew MacDonald and Derek Ellis. That same year, they released The April Storm, a six-track EP that brought the band to the attention of Nova Scotia's leading indie rocker, Joel Plaskett. Plaskett would produce the band's self-titled debut album, which was released in 2005. He was back behind the boards for the 2006 EP Isolator, plus the 2007 album, Little Jabs. In 2008, Little Jabs landed on the short list for Canada's prestigious Polaris Music Prize. ~ David Jeffries
