It’s been an exciting week!
This week we’ve released our newest song, “The Longest Night”, a collaboration with Avid Napper (Charles Lynch) that will be part of our upcoming split album.
The song refers to our longest night here in Cambridge Bay, which lasts 6 weeks in the winter when the sun does not rise above the horizon. It tells the story of two local hunters who got lost in the tundra last year, but managed to be rescued. It’s also meant to be the perfect soundtrack for pumping weights, throwing a dance party, or chasing a polar bear. Or, maybe, running away from a polar bear. It was mixed by North Bay’s wonderful Ben Leggett. Check it out!
We’ve entered The Longest Night into CBC Music’s Searchlight contest for Canada’s Best New Artist. The contest hasn’t started yet, but when it does, we’re gonna be asking you for your support in votes!
Today, CBC Radio 3 host Grant Lawrence chose our song as an early standout for the contest! Check out what he had to say about us:
