Saskatoon band to play Amigos Cantina this Friday, Dec. 6
Six Moons Later, a Saskatoon grunge-y folk band, are about to release their debut 7” EP this Friday, Dec. 6, at Amigos.
Featuring the songs “Sunset Strip” and “When The Wind Wakes Me”, Six Moons Later fuse folk leanings with alterna-guitar power pop. While the first song is powered by sultry vocals and laid-back beach jams, the B-side is a surprisingly fresh fusion of sweet melodies and gritty, wistful pop crunch.
“I wrote some songs a few years ago and I brought them to Matthew and he was really interested in working on them as a band,” says vocalist and guitarist Anna Haverstock. “We essentially picked our two favourite songs to go on this single and hopefully we will do another one in the future.
“We both really wanted to do a 7” because we are both such vinyl collector nerds.”
Recording with Jordan Smith at the Avenue Recording Studio in Saskatoon, Haverstock and drummer Matthew McLaughlin recently drafted two interim members to help fill in for their record release party, including Aaron Karpinka of the K-Bros and Laura Beach of Twin Voices.
And while Six Moons Later have another EP waiting in the wings, the duo also hope to return to the studio for a proper full-length album.
“To be honest the 7”’s took a lot longer than I thought they were going to,” says McLaughlin. “We were originally hoping to have them earlier this summer when we played Ness Creek. Things really got pushed back. So we were hoping to have our second 7” out at this point in the year and that we would be able to record a full-length around Christmas time. But once again things got pushed back.”
