arctic house show

The Arctic Ocean finally froze over today in the Bay. It’s winter now, I guess! Luckily we stayed warm inside at our house show last night. Thank you to everyone who came out to our first live show in Nunavut! It certainly won’t be our last – we’ll be doing it again soon.

House Show this Saturday!

We’re excited to be playing a house show this Saturday at 7PM. We love house shows. Christine Aye will be opening with her own set, and then it’s Scary Bear Soundtrack time! Hope to see a bunch of Cambridge Bay folks there.

New Song – Nothing Bad

It’s National Coming Out Day! In support of LGBTQ folks everywhere, we’re releasing a homemade video for our new song “Nothing Bad”. Shot in our laundry closet, sitting on top of the dryer. Enjoy!

Great news! Our music video Beaver Pond Forest will be screened at the Ottawa International Film Festival this Sunday October 6, at the Mansion. This beautiful music video was shot by the talented Toni van Eeden of PaleAfrikaan Media in the South March Highlands. If you want to attend and cheer on our video on the big screen, you can find the details on the event here. Wish us luck!

In equally exciting news, band member Gloria recently won a writing prize for her short story, The Mercy of the Loon, awarded by the NorthWords NWT. She’ll be interviewed live on air on the CBC North radio show Trail’s End, tomorrow October 2 at 5:40PM Mountain Time (7:40PM EST), if you want to hear her being interviewed by CBC host Allison Devereaux.

Finally, our house show scheduled for this weekend has been moved to Saturday October 19, 2013, to accommodate the opening act’s travel schedule. We’re hoping to see a bunch of people from the community come out to enjoy our tunes!
