Scary Bear Soundtrack had a lovely time participating in  CHUO FM’s Funding Drive! Thanks Ming Wu for letting me perform live on air on his No Filter radio show – you can see photos and listen to the stream here. I also enjoyed sharing my playlist of my favourite female/First Nation indigenous musicians on Ladies First, also broadcast live from the Record Centre (you can hear what we played here. And thanks for playing us on your Radioactive radio show. We have so much love for CHUO FM!

We would like to thank our director Mailyne Briggs for coordinating this whole project; videographer Mason Greenley for his beautiful filming of Christine on location in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut; artist Alexandre Aimee for her fantastic painting; Sabrina Jade Designs for the gorgeous wardrobe; and all you wonderful people who submitted “End Violence Against Women” selfies. from all over the world. Thank you so much. We love you.

Thanks also for all the support that we’ve gotten from our favourite radio stations and media for our new album Ovayok Road and for the music video release, including:

Also, a big grateful hug to fellow musicians like Vague Notion, Clio Em, Erin Saoirse Adair, and Stella Bell-Murray (aka Nine of Nines) for their endless support for us throughout this project.

We had a fun time at the music video release party on Saturday, showcasing Mailyne’s artwork and featuring our dear friend Clio Em as our opening act. Check out Mailyne’s beautiful photos from the event here.

Some kind words from Lina, host of radio show Ladies First:

When listening to Scary Bear Soundtrack, it can only evoke a heavenly, dreamlike experience from beginning to end built around the airy synthetic beats and breathy, wistful vocals of Gloria Guns and Christine Aye, and I think the duo is sounding more serene than ever on their latest album Ovayok Road.

From Quick Before it Melts:

Out of Cambridge Bay, Nunavut comes the alluring bedroom synthpop duo Scary Bear Soundtrack and their equally captivating new release, Ovayok Road. Geographically speaking, Scary Bear Soundtrack are in one of Canada’s northernmost towns, but their spacey grooves and slick new wave sounds have reached far down south…

We love you all!
