The Vienna-based arts collective site What If recently published our response to their call for submissions on what gets our creativity going. Our submission was a series of Arctic postcards that we created, explaining how we get inspiration for our music. You should check it out here, along with the other fascinating responses.
Meanwhile, the Searchlight adventure continues! We’ve recorded a live performance of our song Fault Lines:
We are looking for people to send us selfies of them holding signs that say “End Violence Against Women”. We’ll be including these selfies in our music video for Fault Lines. If you want to take part, check out the details here
CBC Music’s Searchlight contest for Canada’s Best New Artist is such a great way to discover new music and especially for musicians to discover each other. We’ve been fortunate enough to have our Searchlight song included in a few lists of favourite picks, including:
- Aidan Mayes and Mandy Cole, in their fave #Searchlight picks, which you can listen to here:http://music.cbc.ca/#!/play/Aidanandmandy/playlist/Our-Searchlight-Top-10-in-Round-1

A big thanks to CBC producer Mike Miner for the shout out on CBC Radio Noon in Montreal. We’re also honoured to be part of the original Searchlight Mixtape again this year, which you should definitely check out here: http://www.thepredatorprey.com/searchlight-mixtapes
