Who: A psychedelic folk-rock band formed in 2011 in Toronto.
Their beguiling sound pairs the stunning harmonization of female
voices with the shimmering textures of banjo and vibraphone.
Influences: Wilco, Fleetwood Mac, Kate Bush, Big Thief,
Waxahatchee, and Kevin Morby.

Album: EGO DEATH
Info: ‘Ego Death’ works as a narrative cycle chronicling songwriter,
Anna Mernieks-Duffield’s challenges with mental health & her journey
towards self-acceptance. With fuzzy, swirling guitars, gorgeous vocal
harmonies, intense melodies, and some perfectly placed vibraphone.
Released: 26 March 2021
The band says: Three years ago we decided that we weren’t done.
We agreed to link arms, embrace new sounds and ideas, and this
is what we created!
Turn Up The Volume: If you switch from jangly pop to metal Nightwish
fragments (Born To Win), from Sharon Van Etten elegance to Lenny Kravitz
guitars and back (Find Me), from musing lullabies (Til The Morning Comes /
To See The Light / Thee Star System) to amplified folk with banjo riffs (Sweet Tea)
and classic rock (Break Glass) and spice it all up with sparkling vocals/harmonies,
you have my aural attention for a long on repeat time. Follow in my earsteps,
you won’t be sorry.
