We live in a time where all the information that has ever existed is available at the click of a button. Before we leave the house each morning we have all seen countless images of what we should be trying to attain. The hear, the fashio, the lifestyle, the cars, the makeup, and all the celebrities, all right there in our homes each morning when we log on. All of it with a huge price tag. All of it instant, without warning, without much thought it seems. We are in the era of information pollution. The golden age of global warming. With so much in the atmosphere, how do we drown all the voices out? How do we know which ones to listen to? Which voices speak the truth?
Formed in 2012, it’s hard to believe that this all-girl trio from Saskatchewan is only 17. Canada’s Top 4 Finalist for CBC Searchlight in 2017, and winner of Sasktel’s 2015 Songwriter of the Year, The Wolfe touches on relatable subjects that are expressed through their risk-taking, sometimes cheeky, yet stuck-in-your-head catchy tunes.
Fox Who Slept The Day Away does not spend their days idly, despite what their name suggests. From their first demo, “Sometimes”, it was easy to see that the quartet were on to something special. The EP spoke to a maturity far beyond what is expected of the young group, and since then this dynamic has been ever evolving and delighting fans. Blending jazz and math-rock technicality with the ambience of post rock, they have created a unique and diverse sonic range. With ambitious influences such as The Antlers, Grizzly Bear, and Local Natives, the band is constantly working to develop and encompass new branches of music.
