It’s that time of year again, we’re playing In the Soil! If you don’t know what the festival is all about, it’s an arts festival based out of Omar’s home town St. Catharines. The ITS team converts the downtown core into a vibrant art play ground where you can jump from installation, to show, to play to gallery.
It’s always a blast and we’re pumped to go down and play for our 3rd time. We’re playing Merchant Ale House Friday 28th at 9pm, but our buddies Ketamine Girls are playing right before us, so be sure to come early.
We’ve been working hard on our second album and we’re so close to being done. This means we can start focusing on shows again! We have two shows lined up right now but expect to see more as the summer comes closer and closer!
We’ll be playing The Piston in Toronto April 4th and In The Soil in St. Catharines on April 28th. For more information check out our Shows Page.
Our new single You Are Here is up on Exclaim! We’re so excited to share new music with you, give it a listen by clicking here! The artwork is by our incredibly talented friend Michael Gavin White! This is the first in a batch of songs we recorded at a farmhouse in Madoc earlier this year.
We’ve been working on new recordings for some time now, having started the process in Madoc last spring. There we recorded drums, bass and guitars. We’ve been finishing the recordings here in Toronto and we’re almost ready to share!
We’ll be releasing a 3 song EP in November of 2016 to coincide with our next Horseshoe show.
We had a great time last weekend in Ottawa played with Trees and Melancholiflowers at Pressed Cafe. Tonight we’re headed to St. Catharines to play on top of the NAC for ‘Another Show ontop of the Stairs’. Check out all our summer shows with this sick graphic done by our very own Kathryn Kearns.
We just finished our first ever music video for ‘Pillar’. The video was shot in the fall of 2015 at Guild Park in Scarborough and Sterling Studio in Toronto. It features a slit scan photography technique in which the image captures an effect of time rather than space. The process was originally used to achieve the “photo-finish” look at Olympic games and was adapted to film for Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Thanks for visiting the site. If you’ve never visited before, we just released our debut album Reverie and you can listen to that on our music page!
If you’ve been here before, you probably noticed that it’s looking a little different. We’re trying to keep the website more up to date so you’ll be seeing more frequent posts here on the home page.
We recently added a video we did in St. Catharines last November with the great people at Band On a Couch. Fitting 6 people plus instruments on a couch isn’t easy but we did it and had a lot of fun. Check out that video and more on our videos page.
